The Gravl Platform Helps Scientists
Find Answers To The Most Difficult Questions

"Scientists shouldn’t have to send emails to find the tools they need to make life-saving discoveries"

Gabor Bethlendy | Founder & CEO | GRAVL

“University leaders can now drive revenue growth without sacrificing scientific innovation"


Gabor Bethlendy | Founder & CEO | GRAVL

Our Culture (inspired by Reed Hastings, No Rules Rule)

We Live By Simple Principles

#GiveFirst - give to those within and around the company with no strings attached. 

Radical Transparency - say what you really think, with positive intent. Provide enough information for people to take ownership. 

Removing Controls - limit decision-making approvals needed to foster an “individual decision-making with input” process. Lead with context, not control.

Give More Than You Take

Let's Keep It Simple


We believe that every life ever saved starts with basic research. 

So we built a platform that allows universities to make all their cutting-edge resources accessible.
