Audible Inc.

Donald Katz, CEO of Audible Inc., will share his entrepreneurial story from journalist to founder of a premier media company and the category leader in spoken-word entertainment. Audible is the largest provider of premium digital spoken audio information and entertainment on the Internet. The company serves millions of listeners and offers over 300,000 downloadable audiobooks, audio editions of periodicals, and other programs.

In 1995, Don saw an opportunity to harness digital technology in order to give readers more time to enjoy books, and to fill the commuting drive time of 105 million Americans with meaning, learning, art and storytelling. Audible’s rich history of innovation has transformed a media category into a daily service that allows millions of people to drive to work listening to literature performed by Richard Armitage, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Emma Thompson, Nick Offerman, Lily Collins and more. Today, Audible empowers a new breed of book lovers who see listening and reading as interchangeable.
