Mission-driven capital to preserve our way of life, a profile of C5 Capital

Maddy Banners 14

C5 Capital was founded in 2014 by our CEO, André Pienaar. He was previously the youngest Managing Director at risk consulting firm Kroll and founded C5 after recognising the need for a mid-stage VC focused on cybersecurity.

Back then, cybersecurity didn’t have nearly the visibility it does today – it wasn’t a corporate priority and was typically handled by the IT department. Now, it’s a top-three agenda item for Fortune 500 CEOs, and the majority of headlines around the world typically have “cybersecurity” or “ransomware” on the front page. C5 Capital was ahead of the game.
