The power-house female executives behind Astarte Ventures have focused on creating ‘a new venture category and operating model for venture that directly and positively impacts the health management options for women and children’. Per their investment thesis, they look for innovations that offer the 3 C’s:
- Control for women over their own and their children’s health and well-being.
- Capacity for managing health and well-being, which include time and efficiency, among others.
- Convenience in managing their own health and well-being.
The female and child sector is largely overlooked in typical venture capital funding, and Astarte has made significant strides in this wide-open market, funding physical, mental, and social health-focused innovations.
