Aster: a growing international Venture Capital fund specialized in industry transformation

We are a Venture Capital fund investing in entrepreneurs focusing on the sectors inseparable from the world’s shared challenges – climate change, quality of living and the sustainability of economic growth. At times contributors to the problem, industrial sectors are also fundamental to the solution. From Energy to Manufacturing and Construction, and from Mobility to Food, we’re passionate about the industries with the greatest impact on our daily lives.

Headquartered in Paris, we have also offices in San Francisco, Tel Aviv, and London. Since 2000, we have invested in more than 60 startups that are transforming markets through innovative offers and technologies. We have a stage agnostic approach with a preference for Seed/Series A (tickets from €500k to €10m).

We are more than investors and we intend to act as an ally for entrepreneurs by connecting them to a valuable ecosystem of experts, influencers and business leaders. From marketing to executive talent, our commitment to help our portfolio companies grow their business is further exemplified by our Business Hub team, which is dedicated to connecting startups with corporates.
