Beyond Demo Day: An Update on TechStars Alumni

Leon Noel of SocialSci

Leon Noel is co-founder of SocialSci, an online survey platform that is designed to meet all the requirements of scientific studies. “We connect academic researchers with an honest participant pool online,” Noel explains. “This greatly increases the turnaround time on scientific research.” Noel and his co-founder went through TechStars Boston’s Spring 2010 program. 
 
 
“TechStars afforded us this instant community, and this ability to network and being around entrepreneurs who are going through the same thing,” Noel says. SocialSci has worked with researchers at schools such as Harvard, Stanford, and University of Pennsylvania, and has more than 10 million questions answered so far. The startup raised $500,000 right after the TechStars program; it now has more than $1 million in funding.
