Sound Bioventures Johan Kordel InterviewJohan Kördel can trace his decision to co-found Sound Bioventures to a conversation back in 2018. After spending the better part of a decade as senior partner at a venture capital fund, leading investments and serving on many companies’ boards of directors, Kördel felt an increasing need to do something different. He was telling a business associate about how he wanted more independence and direct influence on decisions and the funding processes. “I was having this conversation with my colleague,” Kördel recalls, “and they said, ‘Why don’t you start your own fund?’ And funny enough, I actually hadn’t thought about that before.”
