The site is edited by Sam McNerney. Some of the articles will be cross-published on Fortune.com.
Carolyn K. Reidy, President and CEO of Simon & Schuster, said in the announcement, "Business books have long had a strong and devoted readership, and we think that 250 Words can fill the need for a smart, highly-curated site dedicated to the best in this thriving category. In establishing 250 Words as a publisher-agnostic site, we believe we can foster a community that will better serve authors and readers by bringing attention to the books that are of the most interest to them, regardless of the source."
