Our core mission at Celigo is simple: to enable independent best-of-breed applications to work together as one. We believe that every independent department and every business end-user should always have choices when it comes to picking software, and that integration challenges should never stand in the way.
We also believe integration should be easy and simple – the way anyone can pick up and use an iPhone for the first time – no matter how powerful the underlying applications.
What’s in a name? We think quite a bit. The name Celigo was coined by combining the words Central and Ligo (to tie or bind in Latin) in our quest to develop a cloud-based (central) platform for integrating (tying) applications together. That was way back in 2006, perhaps a little ahead of the times; and yes, we started in a garage. We reached a total of 100 employees and over 700 active customers before taking any institutional capital — a unique feat if you’re based in the heart of Silicon Valley.
