Providing Exceptional Returns by Solving the World's Biggest Challenges

At AdAstral we know that universal change requires moonshot thinking which has the potential to deliver stellar returns. The most disruptive technologies are the ones that benefit humanity on a global scale. As a venture studio, our portfolio of expertise includes an in-house lab and strategic partnerships with leading academic and government institutions to bring transformational technologies to market. Our pioneering work in discovery and translational sciences bridges the gap between idea and scalable product while bringing to bear our collective experience building successful companies. Our goal is to not only create and launch the next generation of scientific solutions, it is also to create an expanding orbit of socially-minded investors who seek to solve humanity's toughest challenges. 

 

 Approach 

We leverage our exclusive agreements with leading laboratories and academic institutions to build powerful technology platforms. AdAstral has unique access to the world's leading 'omics', energy, material-science, risk-mitigation, and weather datasets. We apply our technology assessments with knowledge gained from that data, and proprietary market research, to successfully analyze new market opportunities.
