Capti’s reading simplification technology gets a $1 million boost | Local News
Capti, a Buffalo-based education technology startup, has received a $1 million boost from the National Science Foundation.
Capti was awarded a Small Business Innovation Research Grant to conduct research and development on accessible reading for students.
It is another step forward for Capti, which relocated to Buffalo from Long Island in 2019. The startup now has four locally based employees and one employee working remotely. The business is based at the University at Buffalo’s Downtown Gateway.
The foundation’s grant will fund Capti’s development of technology that automatically simplifies texts to match students’ reading level, said Yevgen Borodin, the company’s CEO.
