Our Values

We believe in trust, collaboration, and treating everyone with respect and dignity. Values matter to us, which is why we have been values driven since the beginning. We believe so strongly in who we are and how we operate that we lay it all out in our Manifesto.

Elevate Security innovated a new way to improve security awareness training.

Working with Us

Our small size means you get direct communication and fast decision-making. We are transparent in our process and make our next steps clear. If we like you and your idea, we do our part of learning more. We take the time to understand your product and customers. We ask not just what but why now? We ask not just who you are today, but what is your capacity to grow? And as board members, we maintain a high-integrity approach and a steady hand.

We Accelerate Your Learning

No company is one-size-fits-all, and not every best practice is right for every company. That’s why we have product, marketing, talent, and sales experts on staff who work alongside you when you need it so your company can find it’s stride faster. We coach and share best practices to help you find what works best for your product, market, stage and team. Most important, you get to learn from Costanoa’s peer community and regular events.

“There’s a playbook to building strong enterprise software companies and Costanoa has it. Their counsel has saved us countless hours of wasted time and energy.”
