“Michelle is an experienced early-stage investor passionate about working with founders building disruptive and innovative products,” said Rob Rueckert, Partner at Sorenson Ventures. “Her vast experience across the capital stack — from early-stage VC to advising publicly-traded companies on multi-billion dollar M&A transactions — will be a great asset to Sorenson Ventures. She brings a high level of curiosity, intellectual engagement, and strategic insight and we could not be more excited to welcome her to our growing team.”

When Sorenson invests its capital, we are also investing our commitment, dedication, and energy. We understand what it takes for an early-stage company to succeed, and invest heavily in setting our founders up for success. I haven’t seen many firms more thoughtful about their value add.”
