About Sonder

Sonder is revolutionizing hospitality through innovative, tech-enabled service and inspiring, thoughtfully designed accommodations combined into one seamless experience. Launched in 2014 and headquartered in San Francisco, Sonder provides a variety of accommodation options, found in over 35 markets spanning 10 countries and three continents. The Sonder app gives guests full control over their stay. Complete with self-service features, simple check-in and 24/7 on-the-ground support, amenities and services at Sonder are just a tap away, making a world of better stays open to all.

Inovia’s Full Stack team has developed a strong perspective and depth of knowledge in the travel space, and so when the opportunity arose to participate in Sonder’s Series D growth round, we were excited to dig in. With an exceptional understanding of the shifting dynamics in traveler demands and expectations, a rigorous mindset, attention to detail, and a vision for the future, Sonder Co-Founder Francis Davidson and his team have rapidly built a powerhouse brand.

Following a SPAC merger, Sonder started trading on the Nasdaq (SOND) on January 14, 2022.
