Learnify

Learnify is an ed-tech company on a mission to create tailored learning experiences that recreate how students learn and interact in the classroom, thereby improving their performance, organization, and engagement with their course curriculum and peers. By cross-examining a student's course materials with their current comprehension and personal preferences, we use machine learning and natural language processing to create dynamic study content, such as flashcards, practice quizzes, note summaries, and other productivity- and interactive tools to guide a student towards academic mastery. After months of testing and collecting feedback through a private beta, we are gearing up for our public launch in time for the upcoming school year in September. We seek to grow by offering a three-tiered freemium model, selling direct to students - until we have enough traction - at which point we will gradually transition over to a B2B model, partnering with universities, high schools, and other academics institutions.
