Sanjiv focuses on venture and growth investments in B2B software, and is particularly interested in large legacy industries that have not or are undergoing digital transformation. Sanjiv joined OpenView as a Partner in November 2020.
I’ve invested in companies that serve plumbers, auditors, maintenance people, part-time contractors, shut-down hoteliers, construction and manufacturing laborers and many more. I’m excited to expand upon OpenView’s mission to improve people’s working lives by extending the benefits of technology and software to all working lives, and to help daring founders and CEOs build enduring companies along the way.
