About Us

In 1995, four college students sat around a Subway sandwich shop table writing "start-up" business ideas on a napkin for an entrepreneurial class project. We're glad that napkin didn't make it to the trash. Those four students went far beyond a class project and built SciQuest, a company that would revolutionize the way you buy the materials and supplies your organization needs. Today, we are the leading public provider of spend management solutions, delivering value beyond savings to customers across a wide range of industries.
