Climate at Astera

Astera’s Climate Program enables basic science and early technology development in under-explored areas of climate change mitigation and adaptation. We invest in high-risk, high-reward projects that demonstrate latent potential for outsized impact. Our goals are to find “big if true” technologies, question the status quo, take daring bets, and ultimately to drive transformative progress for humanity on a sustainable planet.

We are not looking for unsolicited outside projects, untethered to our theses. However, if you think you have a project that may be of interest, please send a paragraph (no more than half a page) about your project to We will reach out if there is a clear opportunity for partnership.
