Insight & Approach
Vector’s investment partnership with the Kela builds on nearly two decades of experience and success as an investor in both cybersecurity and in Israel. Vector identified Kela as a leader in its space with unique and cutting-edge technology offerings. Profitable since inception, rapidly growing, and operated by an entrepreneurial team of elite technologists, Kela was seeking a U.S. based technology investment partner to support their international expansion efforts. Over the course of nearly a year, Vector developed a collaborative relationship with the company’s founders and management team, leading to Vector’s $50 million Series A investment in May 2018 - the company’s first outside institutional investment in its history.
Vector Value Add
Vector is closely collaborating with Kela’s co-founders and management team to execute on several operational initiatives, with a focus on strategic and tactical go-to-market augmentation and North American expansion.
