Celo was co-founded in 2017 by Rene Reinsberg and Marek Olszewski, who were executives at the web hosting firm GoDaddy, along with Sep Kamvar and Marek Olszewski, an MIT professor and Google executive.
In fact, Celo is not Reinsberg’s first startup. In 2011, he founded Locu, a machine-learning venture that spun out of MIT and was later acquired by GoDaddy. Below, he explores his journey into crypto and building a truly diverse company focusing on emerging markets.
Celo is supported by a community of organizations and individuals, including “Jack Dorsey”, one of the founders of Twitter, “a16z” a venture capital firm in Silicon Valley, and Deutsche Telekom.
