Company Summary

College students spend dozens of hours filtering through university webpages trying to find the right resources without any good tools to locate them. Project Lever makes it easy for students to start research projects by aggregating university resources and providing searchable databases of courses, student projects, faculty profiles, grants, and library guides. We sell subscriptions to universities, who offer them to their students for free.
