About Alex Kayyal

SVP & Managing Partner at Salesforce Ventures. We are the VC arm of Salesforce and invest from Series A to pre-IPO growth rounds. We are looking to partner with the most ambitious software founders anywhere in the world.

I have led investments in many leading software companies globally, including Algolia, Bringg, Contentful, Darwinbox, Genesis Global, GoCardless, Gong, Hopin, monday.com (NASDAQ: MNDY), NewVoiceMedia (sold to Vonage), NS1, Onfido, PerimeterX, PopMenu, Privitar, RedKix (sold to Facebook), Salto, SessionM (sold to Mastercard), Snyk, Unbabel, WeFox, WhiteHat and Zoomin.

My path to VC followed a short stint as the founder of TableZest, a Boston-based company in the data analytics and customer loyalty space.

Prior to Salesforce, I helped launch Hermes Growth Partners, a venture growth firm investing in enterprise SaaS and fintech companies across the US and Europe. While there I led our Series B investment and served on the Board of TheTradeDesk (Nasdaq: TTD), which is now valued at over $30 billion. I was also fortunate to support our investments in RingCentral (NYSE: RNG) and Fuze (acquired by ThinkingPhones).

Previously I worked at Merrill Lynch in the CFO’s office and within investment banking leading IPOs and M&A deals for high growth companies. HBS and Boston University graduate. Born in Switzerland, speak 5 languages.
