Celesta investments target deep technology sectors that will lay the groundwork for the next generation of technological advancements. We are singularly focused on pinpointing the systems and technology advancements that will redefine
the “leading-edge” and affect technology paradigm shifts.
The Celesta team has the experience and technology expertise to analyze the landscape of today and identify the technology solutions that will define the world of tomorrow. Today, we focus on five primary areas of investment.
Decades of business operations experience, along with invaluable network connections and deep technical expertise enables us to support portfolio companies with much more than simply capital alone.
Celesta deals are primarily sourced through our strong network of relationships with entrepreneurs, academia, investment ecosystem stakeholders and co-founders, who seek us out due to our track record as operating executives.
In addition to targeting emerging technologies, we evaluate portfolio investments based upon the speed and ease with which they can create high-margin value and scale up globally. Where necessary, our team leverages domain expertise, operational and entrepreneurial experience, and network of relationships, to enhance value and velocity for our portfolio companies.
We prepare our portfolio companies for each investment stage by engaging the right co-investors, identifying sequential investors, and aligning investment time horizons. Identifying “Step Change” opportunities – scale financing, partnerships, M&A – is a critical criteria of our selection process and ongoing strategic reviews.
