Founder, ACE91

Ceci has over 38 years of experience in strategic business development and making investments. She invests in content creation/distribution, blockchain technology, and sustainable energy consumption.

She is a Funding Partner of Dalpha-Tech, a joint venture between Dasym, an independent, research- driven investment company with a strong presence in telecoms, media, and technology (TMT), and Haier, the world’s largest appliance manufacturer. The Dalpha-Tech platform develops Smart City/Smart Home technologies to enhance quality of life for global consumers.

She founded ACE91 to create film and TV programs that inspire international audiences to increase positive changes. In October 2022, ACE91 completed production of “2020: Chaos and Hope,” a feature documentary (shown on Peacock) that examines how the COVID-19 pandemic amplified systemic inequalities in the US. A film with 9-time Grammy-winning Jazz icon, Wynton Marsalis, is in development. ACE91 and Dasym lead the creation of a film based on Oxford Prof. Peter Frankopan’s critically acclaimed international best-seller, “The Silk Roads.”

She is a Vice Chair of the Kennedy School of Government’s Dean’s Council. Additionally, she is an Executive Committee member of the USC Shoah Foundation, which was founded by Steven Spielberg over 30 years ago. She spearheaded the Nanjing Project for the Shoah Foundation, and executive produced “Liberation Heroes,” “The Girl and The Picture,” and “Two Sides of Survival,” award-winning films that aim to reduce racism, hatred, and violence. She supports NYU’s African Grove Theater, which reopened in 2023, 200 years after it had been shut down. She supports prison reform efforts as a part of her drive to increase civil and voting rights. Ceci has worked resolutely to reduce racism, hatred, and violence since 1985.
