C5 Acquisition Corp. is led by entrepreneurs, former senior national security and intelligence officers, investors and executives with deep technology experience in our target sectors. Our team is led by Rob Meyerson, former President of Blue Origin and Steven Demetriou, Chair and CEO of Jacobs Engineering (NYSE: J), an innovative global solutions leader in renewable energy, cybersecurity, and space intelligence and exploration.
Our business strategy is to identify highly competitive businesses run by world class teams pursuing large market opportunities. We are focused on businesses seated at inflection points of growing demand driven by technological innovation in space, cybersecurity, and the energy transition.
Given the operational experience, deep technology expertise and investing track record of our team, we believe C5 Acquisition Corp. is well-positioned to attract leading entrepreneurs and target businesses aligned with our strategy. Our sponsor is an affiliate of C5 Capital, a global specialist investment firm whose mission is to nurture a secure digital future. Our acquisition process will leverage C5 Capital’s network of national security practitioners and dedicated investment professionals, with significant transaction experience in our target sectors, which we believe should provide us with proprietary sourcing channels to identify quality business combination targets.
We are seeking an acquisition where our continued involvement will unlock significant value for investors. Following the initial business combination, we expect to assist the post-business combination entity in advancing its growth plans. We expect to collaborate with management as an active partner on a variety of activities including broadening their networks of prospective customers; building strong partner ecosystems; supporting diverse, equitable and inclusive talent acquisition; and providing advice on growth strategy.
