First fund

On February 27, 2019 Sorenson Ventures announced closing their first investment fund with $110 million in capital. The managing director of Sorenson Ventures, Ken Elephant, made the following statement regarding the firms first venture fund:

We are product-first investors and are attracted to entrepreneurs who use their engineering vision to change markets, which you will see evidence of in our first eight investments. Most of our founders are repeat entrepreneurs with strong domain expertise. We believe we bring something different to the table, and as such, we've been fortunate to syndicate our initial investments with firms such as Lightspeed, Battery Ventures, Emergence, Accel and Greycroft, among many other high-quality firms. We're going to continue to invest in innovative software and security companies that have impressive intellectual property and management teams with the vision to execute.
