According to BetaKit, San Francisco-based and Montréal-founded travel tech startup Sonder is looking to grow the company’s presence in its hometown.
Two years after being founding in 2012, Sonder moved its headquarters to San Francisco and incorporated in the United States, in the pursuit of international investors.
Now, Sonder has a renewed focus on Canada, including plans to open a second headquarters in a major Canadian city.
Sonder has yet to make an official announcement regarding this office but a source familiar with Sonder’s operations told BetaKit the company has effectively chosen Montréal for its second headquarters.
Sonder raised a US $170 million Series E round in June and is back in hiring mode, with a significant number of job postings in Montréal, as well as its other global offices.
