Sanjiv was named to “Business Insider’s 23 Rising Star Enterprise VCs” in 2020.

Past Portfolio



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.


Prior to joining OpenView, Sanjiv was a Principal at Battery Ventures, where he was focused on B2B software.  At Battery, Sanjiv was a Board Observer at ServiceTitan, AuditBoard, MX, VNDLY, Vidyard and RiskIQ, he was a Board Member at Mews, Newforma, and SmarterHQ, actively involved with Battery’s investment in InVision, and a seed investor in companies such as Upkeep and Fulcrum.

Sanjiv began his career operating software companies, while a GM at Constellation Software (TSX:CSU), and later spent time at 37signals (now Basecamp) and in investing roles at Bessemer Venture Partners and Hyde Park Angels.


Our people, here to help yours.

In March, to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we temporarily closed our office in Boston and became a fully remote team overnight. We all miss being in the same place together, but we’ve adapted to the current environment and have fully embraced Zoom and Slack so we can stay as connected as possible.
