When She Founded

Get an insider view on what it really takes to start and scale a STEM company. When She Founded with Somer Hamrick offers practical tips, inspiring interviews, and actionable advice from female founders. Whether you are just starting out, or you already run a successful company, Somer’s one-on-one conversations with industry mavens will help you grow faster, with more support.

Somer launched her own company, Channel Clinical, in early 2019. Even though she had 20 years’ experience in business development and a decade’s worth in global health and clinical research, Somer had to reach outside the life science community for support and mentorship. She created When She Founded to demystify the path to successful entrepreneurship for other female founders in STEM.
