​​About Knowde

Chemical companies are the hidden innovators behind the end-products we rely on every day. Chemistry is used to make every physical good on earth, including the products we love from Tesla, Glossier, Apple, Nike, 3M and J&J. And yet, the largest and most impactful industry in the world is still doing business the same way it did 100 years ago. Until now.

Knowde is a technology company building software exclusively for the $5 trillion Chemical Industry. We solve the root problem holding the industry back from successful digital transformation: organizing and digitizing product data. By pulling this industry online, we believe the world's innovation of every physical good will instantly accelerate.

We’ve raised over $100M from the world’s leading investors, including Sequoia Capital and Coatue, to realize our vision.
