Most of the world's technical and medical innovations begin with a scientific paper, and the faster science moves, the faster the world moves. We make science and R&D faster, more open and more transparent by bringing the whole scientific process into the cloud, from idea to writing to review to publication. With Overleaf we're building Google Docs for science. Our primary product, Overleaf, is an online, real time collaborative editor for papers, theses, technical reports and other documents written in the LaTeX markup language. In six years since launch, Overleaf has seen rapid adoption and now supports a community of over three million authors worldwide who’ve created over 21 million documents to date. These include major institutions such as Stanford and Caltech, and the platform is also in use by major publishers, making the journal submission process smoother across all the major academic STEM publishers. Many international tech companies and labs are using our enterprise solutions. The current scientific publishing market is worth over $10B annually with over $200B spent on academic R&D. Successfully creating a complete cloud-based solution for academic publishing will revolutionize research and development across both science and industry. More importantly, society increasingly looks to science for solutions to today’s most pressing social challenges, and if we’re going to face up to complex health issues, an ageing population, and the digital transformation of the world, we need science that is faster, more open, more trustworthy, and more meaningful to citizens. We’re making that possible.
