Sammie Hasen

Sr. Analyst, Venturing

I have always had a passion for entrepreneurship, more specifically the intersection of startups and corporations. I was drawn to TechNexus’ unique model because I get to work with both early-stage founders and corporations to build a strong ecosystem for all.

At TechNexus, I spend the majority of my time sourcing companies, conducting initial deal review, and performing due diligence. My other responsibilities are ad hoc projects to support business efficiency and ad hoc market research to support business development.

Prior to my time at TechNexus, I was a product manager at Marcus by Goldman Sachs. My time at Marcus was spent working with cross-functional teams to build a savings product for an external partner. I graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a degree in Biomedical Engineering and a certificate in Finance.

During my time at Georgia Tech, I was the Founder and CEO of medsur Inc., a femtech startup focused on innovating consumer products for uterus owners. I launched my first product, BCase, in partnership with Favor for their 2021 World Contraception Day event. I am very passionate about the femtech space, so don’t hesitate to reach out if you want to chat about it!

Although I was born and raised in Atlanta, I have fallen in love with Chicago. Outside of work, I walk all around the city, go to trivia every Thursday, and play intramural sports throughout the year. I am an absolute Chicago foodie, so let me know if you want any recommendations for the best spots!
