Announcing our $2.2 million fundraise
We started Sona with a very clear mission - raise the bar for smart and user-friendly software, and put powerful technology in the pocket of every deskless worker.
Today we’re super excited to reveal that we have raised a $2.2 million (£1.6m) investment round to help us deliver that vision.
We couldn’t have picked a better lead investor than Speedinvest. We share very similar philosophies on how to approach building and deploying technology products and growing teams. And their Platform+ programme of ongoing advice and support is industry-leading.
“When a world class team of repeat founders builds a well differentiated product in a huge, under-digitized market, it’s a no brainer to partner with them,” Speedinvest Partner Markus Lang told UKTN. “We're beyond excited to be on board and look forward to supporting them in building a category leader.”
Sona joins a portfolio that includes names like Curve, Tide, Wefox, Bitpanda, and TIER, which is an incredible vote of confidence. It’s been a pleasure working with Markus and the team so far - long may that continue!
Alongside Speedinvest we are proud to have the backing of a number of experienced angel investors including Andy Leaver from Notion Capital, Lorenzo Franzi from Flash Ventures and several partners from Novator (whose impressive portfolio includes Stripe, Monzo, Deliveroo, Cazoo, Zwift and Bloom & Wild).
The new funding will be used to accelerate the development of the Sona app and build out the new features in our roadmap faster.
We want to take this opportunity to thank our customers - this couldn’t have happened without you. Your enthusiastic response to the Sona employee app has exceeded our expectations and has inspired us to make even more ambitious plans for the product. We’re incredibly excited about the future and promise we’ll work tirelessly to give you the best experience possible.
A huge shout out to our amazing team too. They haven’t just bought into our vision for Sona, they’ve been instrumental in bringing it to life. Growing a business is always challenging, but they have shown exceptional dedication and determination during what’s undoubtedly been a turbulent time in the world.
We couldn’t be more grateful for the support we’ve had from them and from our wider community of investors, suppliers and partners who share our vision and our excitement for the opportunity that lies ahead.
This is just the beginning.
Ben, Oli & Steffen
