Andrew Dudum is the founder and CEO of hims & hers. He’s also a co-founder and General Partner at Atomic, a venture studio backed by Peter Thiel, Marc Andreessen, and many of the leading venture funds in the world.

Founded in 2017, hims and hers is a telehealth company that sells prescription and over-the-counter drugs online, as well as personal care products. Their mission is to eliminate the stigmas around health and wellness issues and break down barriers for people when it comes to obtaining quality healthcare.
