Saloni Multani has spent 20 years working with, learning from, and investing in growing companies. In recent years, she has focused her efforts on companies and causes aligned with combating climate change, most recently serving as the Chief Financial Officer of the Joe Biden presidential campaign and working to support the administration’s climate efforts.
Prior to her work on the campaign, Saloni was a Venture Partner at Congruent Ventures, an early stage venture firm focused on the sustainability ecosystem; she also worked with Three Cairns Group, a NY-based family office, to help develop and execute a mission-aligned venture investment strategy oriented around climate.

Through these positions, Saloni invested across sectors – including software, industrials, distribution, and beyond – enabling a broad perspective she now brings to climate investing with a goal of helping to create a more sustainable economy.
