Profile

Astral Capital is an investor in emerging tech companies, healthcare, AR, B2B, and Ed-Tech.

In a world where most software products can be built and launched in a matter of months, Astral Capital focuses on Founder-owned businesses that have figured out how to grow aggressively without raising tons of equity.

Jon Karlen founded Astral Capital in 2016 based on his conviction - from 10 years as a venture capitalist - that the best way to build software businesses is on the backs of happy customers.
