SONDER ADVANTAGE

Sonder Capital invests in teams and technologies that can transform healthcare in the medical device, diagnostic and healthtech sectors. 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.

What is a Sonder Deal?

We partner with entrepreneurs who have a passion for making an impact on patients’ lives and are inventing transformational technologies and business models. We look for these key attributes in every investment:

  • Medical device, diagnostic, or healthtech
  • Transformational innovation enabled by technology
  • Significant impact on patient outcomes, access to care or business model, often supported by the opportunity for a $1B+ market cap.

Commitment to Diversity

We recognize there is a gap today in the diversity of the voices heard by the venture community and the number of female and minority run businesses that receive venture backed funding. We want to be part of changing this.

While we traditionally only take inbound pitches from our established referral network, if you as a CEO or Founder are a minority, a woman or another underrepresented individual in the industry, we accept direct requests without a referral. Please email us your pitch deck or one page overview to closethegap@sondercapital.com and we commit to setting up an introductory call or replying with direct feedback on why the opportunity is not a fit with our thesis.

Our diversity metrics (April 2019 – Sept 2020):
