Leanpub's cofounders are Peter Armstrong, Scott Patten, Len Epp and Braden Simpson.
Peter Armstrong has a B.Sc. in Computer Science and Psychology from the University of Victoria, and over a decade of experience as a software developer, much of it at Silicon Valley startups. He founded Ruboss, the company that created Leanpub, in 2008. Peter is also the author of 4 books, including Lean Publishing and Programming for Kids. Peter is also the creator of Markua.
Len Epp wrote his DPhil in English Literature at Balliol College, Oxford, and then transitioned to investment banking in London, specializing in M&A in the utilities sector. Before joining Leanpub in 2012 to lead Customer Development, he co-founded an artsy nonprofit in Montreal. He enjoys wearing the seemingly contradictory hats of resident corporate finance and literary type person at Leanpub. He is serially publishing a comic novel satirizing nationalist literary culture.
