Meet Sanjot Malhi, our newest investment Partner

Northzone is delighted to announce a new addition to our partnership: Sanjot Malhi. Sanjot is joining us as a Partner, specifically focused on Growth investments. With the recent fundraise of €1bn, our largest ever, and the addition of Sanjot to our senior team, we look forward to continuing our commitment to being a full stack partner to leading entrepreneurs.

Joining our London office, Sanjot will work with our teams across geographies to identify the best later-stage investment opportunities across sectors. Born in India, Sanjot has a unique international background, having grown up in the Netherlands and worked across Europe, Asia, and the United States.

Sanjot joins us from Tybourne Capital, a multi-billion dollar fund, investing across public and private markets in North America, Asia, and Europe. Sanjot led private-tech investments for the firm across the globe, from Series B to Pre-IPO, with a particular focus on SaaS businesses. Prior to that, he led technology investments at Matrix Partners, a global VC and early-growth equity firm with $5B+ under management. He has led close to a dozen investments, and has experience across the business lifecycle, right from inception to exit. His investments include those in Country Delight and Zupee, where he was on the board and helped grow the companies from near single-digit million in revenue to over $100M+. 

Sanjot started his career at Bain & Company, where he worked on Private Equity transactions and strategy projects, operating across the United States, India, and Switzerland offices. He majored in Electrical and Electronics Engineering at BITS Pilani, India, before graduating early and going straight for his MBA at Yale University, where he was one of the youngest in history to matriculate. In addition, Sanjot is a former professional athlete, having played football professionally, as well as club-level cricket.

Our Partner, Jeppe Zink, added: “Sanjot has a tremendous track record and great experience in supporting companies scaling up, and I’m sure he will be a sought-after partner for European entrepreneurs pursuing global expansion. This hire is a testament to our dedication to a full stack investment strategy from seed to growth and our desire to double down on investing at such a critical time of the economic cycle.”

Sanjot said: “I am incredibly excited to join Northzone as a Partner. I have known Northzone for a while, and have been intimately familiar with the best-in-class brand among founders. As one of Europe’s oldest and most successful venture funds, I have been deeply impressed by the firm’s consistency in picking generational founders, and the commitment to being their best possible partner through the many ups and downs. I am thrilled to join and continue that rich heritage, to provide a full-stack platform for founders, and create a world-class global Growth practice. In doing so, I can’t wait to partner with the next generation of founders, and help create truly impactful and lasting businesses.”
