Astarte Ventures is the first venture fund dedicated exclusively to the health and wellbeing of women and children, with a primary focus on early intervention and prevention measures. Our investment strategy has a clearly defined core - women ages 25 to 65 with discretionary income - they are the influencers or customers of health-related decisions and care.
Given our unique perspective driven by the fact that females are the primary influencers of health care decision making, we seek investment opportunities that will include products and services that offer women: control over their own and their children’s health and wellbeing; capacity for managing health and wellbeing (time efficiency); and/or convenience in managing their health and wellbeing.
Astarte Ventures is managed by investors and entrepreneurs who came together around a shared vision of a new venture category and operating model for venture that directly and positively impacts the health management options for women and children. To augment the investment experience of our team, we have recruited an Advisory Board of market leaders in consumer and women's health, life sciences, and pediatric health, who have held positions with Johnson & Johnson, Wyeth, Genentech, Unilever, Disney, American Express, Dannon and Haagen-Dazs.
