About Us

Teragonia reimagines how financial sponsors execute their investment theses, from investment sourcing to exit, to maximize value to all stakeholders.
We create digital solutions at the intersection of business knowledge, technology, and quantitative techniques to provide clarity and focus at sponsor velocity.

Teragonia raised over $10 million in seed funding from private investors with extensive experience and networks in the financial sponsor industry.

Synthesize business domain knowledge, quantitative techniques, and technology to boost the systemic efficiency of the financial sponsor universe

Our people

We draw our strength from diversity, and are inspired by global cultures exemplifying philosophical abstraction, scientific thought, intellectual humility, entrepreneurial innovation, and unity in community. We work together to build technology rapidly that solves today’s business challenges while anticipating tomorrow’s.

Our Aim

Citius – Altius – Fortius / Faster – Higher – Stronger

We are driven by the Olympic motto to deliver results faster every time, consistently maximize stakeholder value, and continuously fortify businesses with solutions that will withstand constant change.


Great people do great work in a great environment—for it is within the unity of a diverse community that creativity and passion flourish.


We champion the courage to innovate with purpose in a psychologically safe environment. We understand and value that true change starts with an empowered team and not prescribed by leadership. 

Intellectual humility

We foster a culture of knowledge sharing and debate in a bias and ego-free intellectual environment to keep us grounded. We recognize the limits of our knowledge and susceptibility to subconscious biases and prejudices.


We stand up for what is right, even in the face of adversity. We build relationships by being honest, accountable, and reliable.


We believe in lifelong learning as well as our strengths and vulnerabilities as individuals. By accepting ourselves and others without judgment, we contribute and create freely in a positive environment leading to optimal results.


Continuous improvement inspires us. We constantly learn from each experience and challenge norms and traditions to drive innovation and efficiency.


I am because we are. We always place communal goals above the individual’s ambitions. A deep sense of sharing binds and unites us among ourselves and with our stakeholders.


Our respect for the individual transcends nationality, language, education, gender and gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, generation, age, socioeconomic background, religious background, abilities, and disabilities. 


Ideas and innovation are only possible when we listen to and empower each other. Transparent partnerships with open conversations enable us to perform at our best every day.
