Grammarly was founded in 2008 by Alex Shevchenko and Max Lytvyn and counts more than 636,000 fans on Facebook. Their service is a fee-based grammar-check program which allows users to enter text and have it checked for possible plagarism against their database of reportedly 8 billion documents, to receive alternative word suggestions, and to receive suggestions for improving sentence structure and writing.

The company is unsurprisingly headquartered in San Francisco, but it does stay true to its Ukrainian roots with an additional office in Kiev.
