GitBook first started in mid-2014 as an open source project. The original idea was to create a desktop collaborative app allowing users to create, edit and share technical doc.
Observing some users also writing personal notes or product docs on GitBook, we wanted to push forward the original idea. Thus, gitbook.com was created allowing users to host their own content wether its personal notes, knowledge bases or product docs.
🎉GitBook is now sustained by some of the best SaaS europeans VCs (Point 9 Capital, Notion Capital, Fly VC), used by over 500,000 users and thousands of companies such as Adobe, Adeo, Coursera, Decathlon, DuckDuckGo or Redux.
GitBook is a modern documentation platform where teams can document everything from products to internal knowledge-bases and APIs.
We want to help teams to work more efficiently🤝by creating a simple but yet powerful service for them to share their knowledge.
Our mission is to make a user-friendly and collaborative product for everyone to create, edit and share knowledge through documentation.
