Posted 9.11.2018

Get Inspired: Rakuten OverDrive

In this biweekly series, read an inspiring AIM2Flourish business innovation story written by Weatherhead School of Management students about Northeast Ohio businesses.

Few consumer landscapes have changed as fast as media technology - from physical cassettes and DVD,s to cloud-based MP3 titles. Cleveland-based Rakuten OverDrive has not only kept up but is a leader in distributing e-books, audio books, music and videos for both educational and mass-market audiences.

Thanks to Weatherhead School of Management student Shashank Katipally for writing the AIM2Flourish innovation story called: Using Libraries to Advance Quality Education 

At the Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit, we believe that the best businesses are both profitable and show a positive impact for society, the environment, and employees. To build the case, our AIM2Flourish initiative’s website has over 1,400 student-written examples of businesses doing exactly that.

UN Global Goals Supported: Goal 4-Quality Education for All.
