About the business:
Leon Rozenblit started Prometheus Research in grad school. What originated as a consulting business quickly evolved into a software program that helps scientists manage their data efficiently.
The projects soon grew too big for the technology they were using. The company needed to quickly reform their existing platform. Thanks to an angel investor, they received the funds they needed and created an even more efficient -- though more complex -- platform.
Prometheus Research is gearing up to expand its services beyond science world.
