As a startup from UIUC, Cazoodle specializes in building vertical search engines. Cazoodle’s search engines aggregate information from thousands of online sources, creating a one-stop destination for users to quickly navigate through all their possible choices. The underlying technology behind Cazoodle’s search engines was developed at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The unique technology can crawl and transform unstructured HTML content into structured databases, including content hidden in deep Web sources.
Cazoodle currently operates GrantForward.com: Funding Opportunity Search Engine, with 150+ subscribing universities and research organizations, for finding grants, scholarships, fellowships, etc.
