track record
Track Record
  • Since 2003, over 300 companies chosen
    • More than 60% achieve funding or an exit within one year of joining
    • More than $1B raised by Astia companies
    • 22 exits, including 2 IPOs
  • This is an extraordinary success rate for early stage companies and attests to the hidden opportunity presented by women-led companies. Astia’s methodology for portfolio companies clearly contributed to results.
  • - Mitchell Kertzman, Hummer Winblad Venture Partners

How?
  • The exposure to and commitment from the Astia Advisor Community has been an integral part of getting us to where we are today. From start to finish, we were able to close our most recent Series A raise in just six weeks from a top tier firm with the perfect DNA for LearnVest.
