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 hotel accommodations, 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. Their truly people-first and experience-first mindset is reshaping the future of travel and cities in a way that resonates with our own people-first investment approach. From the company:
Each of Sonder’s thousands of spaces across the globe is purposefully selected, designed and maintained directly by Sonder. Whether a stay is two days, two months or two years, in a studio or a six-bedroom, Sonder ensures a unique, yet consistent experience. By forging relationships with communities, developers and local governments, Sonder enhances each city’s culture and vibrancy.
For cities, Sonder partners with developers to renovate blighted properties and stabilize new construction.
For businesses, Sonder encourages visitors to discover cities by suggesting nearby shops and eateries.
For local economies, Sonder’s employee footprint in each market results in millions of dollars annually spent on salaries, vendors and suppliers.
