About Sorenson Ventures

Sorenson Ventures is a Silicon Valley-based, early-stage investor in security and enterprise software companies. We have more than $110 million of capital under management and typically invest in product-oriented businesses at the seed or pre-Series A stage. Once we invest, we reserve capital for investments in subsequent funding rounds and focus on helping portfolio companies establish a strong foundation to accelerate revenue growth with Global 2000 customers. 

“We pride ourselves on rolling up our sleeves to become true partners in building successful businesses.”

The Sorenson Ventures team consists of investors with extensive experience at top firms, such as Battery Ventures, Lightspeed Venture Partners, and Intel Capital. Sorenson’s team prides itself on working directly with founders to validate product/market fit, identify target segments, close early customers, and develop effective sales motions and efficient sales processes that help portfolio companies rapidly scale. 

“Our firm is modeled on the iconic venture funds of decades past who took the time and effort to build relationships with and for their startups,” said Ken Elefant, Managing Partner, Sorenson Ventures. “We fill a funding gap for great founders who need early-stage capital to ignite their growth and pride ourselves on rolling up our sleeves to become true partners in building successful businesses.” 

Rob Rueckert, Sorenson Ventures Managing Partner, added, “We do our real work outside of board meetings. We not only open doors to enterprise customers but also help our companies define strategies, build teams, and develop sales playbooks. We constantly look for ways to help accelerate growth through scalable and repeatable go-to-market processes.”

Sorenson Ventures portfolio companies include Socure, MX, CyCognito, and Openpath, among many others. We are a partner fund of Sorenson Capital, an established growth equity and buyout firm founded in 2003 with more than $1 billion in capital under management.
