“Working with the Inovia team through the ravages of the pandemic has been nothing short of extraordinary. They stepped up to lead our Series E at a moment when the travel industry was on its heels, demonstrating with actions – not words – that they are in it for the long run, through thick and thin.”
Francis Davidson biography
While a university student in Montreal, Sonder’s co-founder and CEO Francis Davidson managed a handful of apartments and began to envision a new set of ideals for hospitality. Over the next few summers, he experimented with matching travelers to vacant student apartments across cities and managing other people’s apartments for short-term rentals. A few years later, he and co-founder Martin Picard solidified the foundation that would become Sonder today. Sonder is now a global hospitality provider that has served more than 1M guests.
