About Us

The Story of Somn

When we talk about sleep, one fraction comes up a lot: one third. We spend one third of our lives asleep. And, one third of the population struggles with shut-eye. This single fraction tells us sleep is a major part of our lives and a massive problem.

Why is sleep such a big problem?

Sleep is complex. And, the science of sleep is relatively under-researched. Plus, the average doctor only gets one hour of sleep training in medical school. If we’re going to solve this global health problem, we need to foster and share more knowledge.

Here’s what we do know.

Sleep nourishes every aspect of who you are – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. And, if we want to improve it, we have to take an individualized approach that considers the nuanced characteristics of your unique sleep. And, this is why Somn exists.

Meet Somn.

We are a team of scientists, entrepreneurs, and researchers who give a damn about your sleep. We’re there by your side, helping you navigate and elevate your rest throughout your life.
