The easiest tool for managing 
and publishing your academic conference

Founders

Recruiting a partner

  • PhD with some research experience
  • ... or not

The problem


Managing and web-publishing academic conferences 
drains research resources

  • Research staff wasting their time on IT
  • Money to contractors
  • Management or IT staff wasting their time

The market


  • Academia.edu hosts 5M users
  • Most of them will attend an academic conference this year

  • ~25,000 conferences are run every year
  • According to a Pareto rate, 20,000 of them will be medium or small sized, our prefered target: short of money and staff

  • Yearly price: 300$ to 700$


Hint: Expect to grow adding research management tools
