The startup founded by IIT Bombay graduate Vinay Kumar and Deekshith Marla, launched its beta product in IIT Bombay and is planning to launch in another top tier university soon. InvenZone has indexed 23 million research papers and lets researchers conduct keyword based searches. These searches also factor in the weightage of the publication.
