"Astia is not just an angel network and fund. It's a community with a values-driven culture, which is the foundation of any organization that is built to last. The group is very invested, both monetarily and in a concerted effort, in increasing the diversity of their portfolio and the ecosystem as a whole. Astia is an organization that truly walks the walk."

 "My time with Astia Angels was incredibly rewarding. As my first exposure to the venture and investing world, Astia Angels offered me a holistic viewpoint into the way to run an organization. From due diligence to investment decisions and everything in between, Victoria and team were efficient, effective and successful."
