Aster Capital appoints venture adviser for water fund

Paris headquartered venture capital firm Aster Capital has appointed Gaëtane Suzenet (pictured) as venture adviser.

Suzenet will be responsible for developing the company’s new expertise on water technologies.

She will focus on bringing together water sector’s players, and other stakeholders interested and active in water technologies and services, in a dedicated investment fund.

Aster Capital believes the momentum is no longer driven exclusively by infrastructure development, but also by the development of new technologies and services.

By raising a dedicated water fund, it expects to support and accelerate the market momentum in Europe and in the US.

Prior to joining Aster Capital, Suzenet was managing director of Dream, the ‘water and environment’ competitiveness cluster for the Centre – Val de Loire region of France, and the director of European affairs at Water UK, the professional federation of industrial water operators in the UK.

Aster Capital’s investments focuses on high-growth companies in the areas of energy, intelligent transportation, advanced materials and the Internet of things.

The firm has offices in San Francisco, Paris and Beijing and has more than $250m (€225.4m) of assets under management in several funds raised from large global corporations and institutional investors.
