Sonder Capital invests in teams and technologies that can transform healthcare in the medical device, diagnostic and healthtech sectors. We are Foundational Investors – we commit our energy and capital early to guide and support companies from inception to acquisition or IPO. We look for big ideas that will change lives.
Core to our success is our ability and willingness to be actively engaged with the companies we invest in, partnering with our entrepreneurs as strategic advisors and providing more than just capital. We believe in getting involved at the early stages of a company which allows us to help entrepreneurs navigate those critical early decisions that can have lasting impact on long-term success.
Our insight into what it takes to bring innovative technologies to market stems from decades of operating experience in the medtech industry. As founders, executives, and board members, we’ve overcome many of the hurdles faced by entrepreneurs
