About Rowan

Rowan is building modern computational tools to accelerate chemical innovation. We believe there is unmet demand for well-engineered chemistry software and that better tools are one of the most effective ways to drive scientific progress. We’re also optimistic about the ability of small, for-profit companies to complement existing scientific institutions.
