Polici PBC - Democratizing Academic Research for All
INDUSTRY: Education, Technology.
COMPANY REPRESENTATIVE: Aadi Kulkarni, Co-Founder.
WHO WE ARE: Polici helps academic research organizations transform their technical findings into communications-ready content. Over the past two years, the Polici team developed a technology that translates research publications into short summaries for communications teams to create impact statements. No longer do they spend hours scouring pages of alien-like words, but instead get key takeaways in moments.
Deans of Communications purchase our software to expedite their team’s process of generating impact statements by 50% for stakeholders (ranging from federal policymakers to funders to farmers). Meaning they get twice as much research to bring to the senate chambers, to evidence success stories, or new tools to help around the farm.
This summer as Blackstone-Techstar Summer Fellows, we beta-tested with centers at Cornell, Duke, and the US Department of Health and Human Services. This fall, Polici signed three letters of intent with Deans at R1 universities and this month signed a deal with our first customer. Our team is advised by the Chair of Harvard’s Economics Department, a Microsoft product management executive and a Cornell Engineering Professor to name a few. Together at Polici, we are on a mission to make academic research accessible.
INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES: Software Engineer Internship, Full Stack Developer Internship.
