Being a company which brings the sophistication of telepresence to the world is pretty hyper-exceptional - and yet our motto is simple & clear: “Diversity, Transparency and Saving The World”. Our whole team is inspired and motivated by it. If there’s one thing we have as an early-stage startup, it’s a sense of accountability to our company motto as central to how we work and how we succeed as a business.
Our mission is simple: save lives. We work to reduce risks associated with normal tasks as well as extraordinary ones. Our proprietary technology and drone piloting system exponentially aid humanitarian endeavors with safety & speed.
Astral AR is committed to diversity, transparency, and stewardship for our team members, partners and customers.
Being that Astral is minority (women, disabled, veteran, people of color) owned, diversity is basic to who we are. The majority of the Astral team is comprised of people who are underrepresented in corporate America’s tech startup “unicorn” company culture. Diversity is very much our version of “normal” and with it comes varied life experiences that add to our innovative genius.
Openness leads to trust, and trust fosters innovation. Instead of balking at transparency, we embrace it as a way to ensure service-oriented team accountability, increase customer loyalty and overall company success. More often than not, people are happier when they feel they've contributed to the well-being of their business and customer base. It energizes us, makes us more thoughtful, and as a result we make more precise decisions.
Stewardship (Saving The World)
When Astral AR was founded, it was with the twofold goal of being a successfully disruptive business and delivering unprecedented safety tools to those who most need them. Human society and the natural world are at risk in multiple - and extremely urgent - ways. Astral AR’s tech is a lifesaving utility. Whether it’s our wide-area drone fleet’s capacity to locate human survivors in a massive disaster area with lightning speed, or our ability to deploy patent pending safety tech or helpful payloads (such as life-rafts, food & water, or fire-retardant), we take lifesaving tools to an entirely new level.
