About the business:
MSDSonline, located in downtown Chicago, sells environmental health and safety software. The company's software suite allows customers to maintain a database of chemicals to comply with environmental laws. A Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is a document that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires for every chemical a business keeps onsite. Founded from a failed dot-com venture at the height of the tech bubble in 1999, MSDSonline serves a niche market made possible by the ubiquity of the internet -- its primary competition is the large paper binder consisting of Material Safety Data Sheets.
