About the business:
Leon Rozenblit founded Prometheus Research when he was in graduate school. What began as a consulting business eventually turned into a software management program that helps scientists and researchers manage their data.
The projects soon grew too big for the technology they were using. The company needed to quickly reform its existing platform. Thanks to an angel investor, Prometheus received the funds it needed and created an even more efficient -- though more complex -- platform.
Yale University, National Institutes of Health, Harvard University, Columbia University and Baylor College of Medicine use Prometheus's platform to manage research data.
