We are a private investment group that invests in SustainAbility.

SustainAbility: humanity’s genuine ability to safeguard and increase access to quality healthcare, viable housing, wealth creation opportunities, and a thriving environment.

Mission + Vision

MISSION:

Omicelo exists to make strategic investments that directly increase the SustainAbility of humanity.

VISION:

By 2035, Omicelo will empower our portfolio companies and strategic relationships to directly impact the lives of one million people.

We are Passionate About our Core Values

Trust is Our Currency

We are committed to our fiduciary responsibilities and to conducting ourselves with sincere integrity – doing what we say we are going to do when we say we are going to do it. This commitment to integrity anchors the trust that we foster between internal teammates as well as between Omicelo and its partners and portfolio companies. This trust is the currency that our firm will draw on to sustain and grow.

We Win With Strong Partnerships

Our success depends on mutually beneficial partnerships within our team, with our partners, and with our portfolio companies. We create an atmosphere where teamwork is celebrated, and we ensure that our incentives are aligned with our partners and portfolio companies.

Diversity is Our Strategic Advantage

The diverse collective of life and professional experiences that we curate when we build teams is our strategic advantage. We value this diversity much more than any one individual’s unique experience. Our purposeful learning approach multiplies each teammate’s problem-solving capability, saves us time, and preserves our capital for more impactful usage. Ultimately, we are not the same; we are different and aligned.

We Multiply Impact Through Innovation

We employ a differentiated underwriting approach that weighs three factors equally when making investments: mission alignment, scalability, and economic viability. To do this well, we expend significant energy creating the quickest path for accurate information to flow throughout Omicelo. Making the best, information-rich decisions at the optimum time grows our ability to meet our mission exponentially.

Investment Approach

Mission Alignment

Omicelo employs a ‘missional radar’ to identify and collaborate with scalable, mission-aligned SustainAbility stakeholders.

Comprehensive Due Diligence

Omicelo is committed to evidence-based decision-making, using intensive data and research to scale social and societal returns in SustainAbility.

Financial Innovation

Omicelo attracts private market investors, fund managers, corporations, health systems, and government agencies to realize competitive financial returns while advancing SustainAbility.

Transparent Accountability

Omicelo is forthright in our investment processes, financial reporting, and initiative outcomes submitting to the highest level of accountability to all stakeholders.
