deCoubertin Books

Senior Investment Executive

“FW Capital have been a fantastic partner - they really believe in what we are trying to do and can see our growth potential.”

James Corbett, Founder and Principal

deCoubertin Books is an independent publisher based in Liverpool that works with some of the biggest names in sport and sports writing. It was set up in 2009 by sports journalist James Corbett who has since relocated the company from London back to his home city of Liverpool.

The business received a £100,000 investment from NPIF – FW Capital Debt Finance to grow its publishing programme and support digital expansion, including a more sophisticated website. The investment is also being used to support an events programme incorporating book signings at local employers and independent book stores.
