I-Corps alumni company Exostellar, a cloud resource optimization and management platform, is on the trajectory to be a star in the tech startup world. Founded by Cornell University computer science professor Hakim Weatherspoon, the company recently announced a successful $15 million Series A round — bringing Exostellar’s valuation to $40 million.
With the new funding, Exostellar will continue working toward the development of AI-enabled cloud GPU resource optimization solutions. The oversubscribed round was led by Celesta and Cambium Capital, with participation from other venture capital firms across the country.
This raise also marks a new chapter in Exostellar’s history, with Tony Shakib stepping into the role of President and CEO as Weatherspoon transitions to Chief Scientist.
