Aster is a Venture Capital firm with offices in 4 major innovation hubs: Paris, Cambridge (UK), Tel Aviv and San Francisco. Since 2000, we have partnered with more than 60 teams of entrepreneurs that are transforming markets with disruptive offers and technologies. We are always open to exploring new ideas related to mobility, energy and industry sectors that we have been covering until now. We invest in all stages, with a preference for the early phase.
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 the growth of our portfolio companies as well as the entire venture ecosystem also involves the commitment of our dedicated Operations team, our innovation strategy consulting firm (Aster Fab) and a crowdfunding branch to further expand opportunities (Aster Crowd).
Some of our success stories include Solairedirect (acquired by Engie in 2015), Digital Lumens (acquired by Osram in 2017) and Avantium (IPOed in 2017).
