Naza Metghalchi

Principal, London

Naza is a Principal at EQT Ventures, one of the largest founder- and operator-led VC funds globally. She focuses on B2B software and enterprise AI applications, working with founders who are reshaping sectors by automating manual and repetitive processes and digitizing workflows, particularly in services that can be augmented by AI.

She began her career at onefinestay, a VC-backed consumer marketplace, where she held commercial and product marketing positions from pre-Series A until exit, after raising $80m. She also published "Rewarding Talent," a guide and app for founders navigating employee ownership and stock options.

Born in Iran, raised in Paris, and now in London, she gravitates toward founders who are tireless, with intrinsic motivations stemming from their upbringing. Naza holds an MS in Management from the London School of Economics and a BA in Political Science from King's College London.

In her spare time, Naza is obsessed with A24, loves connecting people around food, and enjoys the subtle absurdity of Japanese literature.
