Macanta invested in RedShelf Inc. ( in 2016 and has participated in several rounds since, most recently in 2020. RedShelf provides a cloud-based digital distribution platform for eTextbooks which is being used by higher education institutions and students across the US.

Macanta was introduced to to the company’s founders by one of RedShelf’s Directors and was invited to participate in an early round of funding. We believe that the higher education market is an attractive space which is ripe to undergo a transition from physical textbooks to digital learning materials.

RedShelf provides a strong value proposition to schools and students alike, empowering access to a large inventory of digital course materials, cost savings, and ease of use.
