By using Celero

accelerator

modules

we create value for all stakeholders

Companies in constant development, grow sales, increase profitability and enhance competitiveness. At Celero, we have a passion for accelerating that development. To achieve this, we implement our Celero Accelerator Modules (“CAMs”) throughout the investment journey. Our CAMs represent a key part of the hands-on support that we, together with our advisors, provide the founders and management teams that we partner with.

Our vision is to be the

preferred

partner

to owners and management

Finding the right partner is a challenging task for an owner and management. A true partner needs to be characterized by operational value-add capabilities, professional humility, the highest level of integrity and a strong passion for developing companies. At Celero, we believe that we bring all these qualities to the table. Our vision is to be the preferred partner to owners and management. We look forward to discussing with you how we aim to achieve that.

In everything we do

sustainability

plays and integral part

Companies play a crucial role in creating thriving, healthy, diverse and resilient communities for this generation, and generations to come. As an owner of companies, Celero represents an important part in this development. We have committed to reducing our impact on the environment, promoting diversity and ensuring transparency. We have incorporated sustainability into our investment process and ownership model. Not only is this the right thing to do, it is also good for business.

Celero is a signatory to the United Nation’s Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI).
