Soveren is a highly ambitious, inclusive team with a diverse engineering and business experience

We united by our vision that privacy compliance should be a technology feature and that consumers have the rights to full control and transparency over how their data is used.

Our founding team previously built Instamart (now SberMarket), a $1B e-commerce business in Eastern Europe with over 3M customers that provided us with a first-hand experience with how complex privacy compliance is when managed manually.

This is why we founded Soveren and aspire to become to privacy what Stripe is to payments and Twilio is to communications.
