Seed Hatchery isn’t just about big ideas- it’s about driven, talented founders. We want you to get to know ours! Below is the second in an ongoing series of Meet a Founder profiles. Enjoy!
Pam Cooper, CEO of Sodbuster
What inspired you to launch this particular startup?
Since Tom and I got married 6 years ago, we’ve searched for a way to work together. We finally came up with this idea after a series of my saying “there should be a way….” for several different ideas.
I’ve been a community volunteer for 20+ years, many times taking leadership roles. I saw firsthand how archaic their practices were in comparison with the things my CTO was creating.
We are thrilled to have this opportunity to play to both our strengths.
*SH Note: Pam and Tom are our first married co-founders!*
