Modeling software

CosmoTech develops a software platform that allows to model, simulate and predict the evolution of complex systems such as cities, infrastructure networks or even biological tissues.

CosmoTech is based in Lyon, France and was founded in 2010.

Why We invested

Trend – Digitization is deeply transforming a number of industrial sectors. But, predictive analytics are cruelly missing to industrials, and current diagnosis and prognostic tools are only scratching the surface of the value to be extracted from operational data.

Strengths – Cosmo leverages 15 years of research in top French Institutes to build a simulation software enabling to predict the evolution of infrastructures (grid, water, transport). Key applications are asset management, crisis management and planning.

Development thesis – Aster Capital is supporting Cosmo in its move towards a fully operational software platform, and helps the company address the US market.
