Battery Ventures Promotes Four Team Members to Execute on Global Technology Investment Strategy

Battery Ventures, an investment firm focused on innovation and technology worldwide, has promoted four team members—including three to the rank of principal--across four global offices. The newly promoted team members execute deals in areas including business software, enterprise-IT infrastructure, financial technology and industrial tech.

“These promotions highlight the great work these team members have done sourcing deals across three continents—and then working closely with management teams to help grow promising businesses,” said Michael Brown, a Battery general partner. “We are also proud that we continue to internally develop strong investment talent and the next generation of firm leaders, which is an integral part of Battery’s culture.”

Logan Bartlett, based in Battery’s New York office, was promoted to principal. He joined Battery in 2014 and focuses on growth-stage investments, mainly in business-software companies. He is currently involved in Battery’s investments in Amplitude, Braze, Clubhouse, Dataiku, Narvar, Pendo, StreamSets, TrendKite and Workato. Prior to Battery, Logan worked in investment banking. In 2017 he was named to Forbes’ “30 Under 30” list of prominent young investors. He graduated from Washington and Lee University.

Sanjiv Kalevar, who recently relocated to San Francisco from Boston, and Shiran Shalev, who works out of Battery’s Tel Aviv office, also were promoted to principal.

Sanjiv joined Battery in 2013 and also focuses on business-software investments, including those serving “blue-collar” industries such as construction, facilities management, plumbing and other home services. He is currently involved with Battery’s investments in AuditBoard, InVision, Newforma, RiskIQ, ServiceTitan, SmarterHQ, UpKeep and Vidyard. Before joining Battery, Sanjiv worked at Bessemer Venture Partners and for software companies including Constellation Software. He graduated from Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada and holds an MBA from the University of Chicago.

Shiran joined Battery in 2013 and evaluates early- and growth-stage investments in Israel, Europe and the U.S. He focuses on sectors including enterprise infrastructure, application software, and fintech. Shiran spends a significant amount of time in Berlin and is involved with Battery’s investments in Affirm, BigPanda, CrediFi, Cross River Bank, EDR, Elastifile, Guardicore, hibob, N26 and Zeitgold. Previously he was involved with Insert Mobile, which was acquired by Pendo. Before Battery, Shiran worked in investment banking in Israel and the U.S. He graduated from the University of California at Los Angeles.
