Thanks to a shared vision of entrepreneurship and innovation, Aster and Sowefund, a crowdfunding platform, have joined to create a unique offer between Venture Capital and Crowdfunding : Aster Crowd. This unique program for financing and supporting start-up companies selected by Aster, through joint investments with the Sowefund community, is intended to revitalize the financing of innovation and offer everyone the opportunity to become a business angel alongside an investment fund.
Aster pledges to donate a sum equivalent to 1% of the amount raised by startup companies of the Aster Crowd program to Epic, a global nonprofit startup that fights to change the lives of disadvantaged youth. Epic removes obstacles to giving and focuses donations on innovative social organizations to scale their impact. They also bring and promote new ways to give so sharing becomes an accessible and joyful habit. Their services are free and 100% of the money received goes to Epic portfolio organizations.
