Nowi Kallen

Managing Director

Based in London, UK

Nowi Kallen is a Managing Director at Salesforce Ventures. He focuses on multi-stage investing in software companies addressing big pain points, particularly in cybersecurity, DevOps, and product-led growth. Investments he (co-)led include Aiven, Avalor (acquired by Zscaler), Balance, Charles, Laminar (acquired by Rubrik), Snyk, and Wiz. He also invested in Contentful, Gong, Oleria, Averlon, and (Nasdaq: MNDY).

Having lived on three continents, Nowi strongly believes that great companies can be built anywhere and is particularly focused on backing technical founders. He can often be found looking for investment opportunities in less charted territories or remote-first companies. He thinks we are still in the early innings of enterprise automation (not least given AI), and is optimistic about how this will transform companies and improve people’s lives in the future.

Before joining Salesforce Ventures, Nowi was an investor at tech investment firm Vitruvian Partners, focusing primarily on software. He started his career advising security and other software companies on M&A and IPOs at Barclays in New York City and London.
