Apostolos Publishing Ltd is a family run independent publishing house with offices in London, specialising in academic biblical studies and theology (PhD theses or post-doctoral work). Our aim is to bring scholarship to readership - unlike may publishing houses in this dubject area we do not charge our authors for our services, and we offer them a fair share (50%) of royalties. Through working with leading partners in the industry, we are able to print on demand in various continents and ship worldwide. We also produce digital products available on platforms such as Kindle, Nook, and Apple. We launched out first book in August 2015 and busines has begun well, with a number of authors already signed up, our books receiving extremely good reviews from world-leading academics, and sales are growing slowly but steadily.

However, to achieve our business plan we must break into the world's biggest market for our products - the USA. In the world of biblical studies, there is only one way to break into this market, and that is to exhibit at the Society of Biblical Literature's Annual Meeting. This year's will be in Tennasee during November 2016, and we have already made a number of industry contacts who wish to meet with us at this exhibition. Since all of our assests are currently tied up in book production, we are looking for willing investors to fund our exhibit.
