Menlo Park, CA—September 10, 2020—AST Private Company Solutions (PCS) today announced a strategic partnership with the small business division of CSC—incorporate.com—to add Astrella to its list of corporate services. Astrella is an ownership tracking system for small and large private companies.
Astrella is a transformative technology supporting unlisted companies worldwide by tracking their ownership data and providing access to shareholders and employees.

It’s built with an API-based ecosystem that integrates with partner systems, providing necessary solutions to private companies.
For more than 120 years, CSC has adapted to serve companies of all sizes, in every phase of the business life cycle—from startups to 90% of the Fortune 500 companies, law firms, and financial institutions—streamlining the way they do business across the globe. CSC helps establish, grow, and maintain small-to-medium sized businesses through its incorporate.com division, which provides a wide range of business services.

“Building and operating a successful business is a rewarding experience that demands an unwavering focus on the details of compliance, risk mitigation, and advanced technology,” says Jennifer Kenton, executive vice president and head of Marketing and Customer Development, CSC. “Managing the ownership structure of a company is a key component that can get complicated if not set up properly from the onset. We’re excited to offer Astrella to our clients as they start and grow their companies.”
Adds PCS President Carine Schneider, “Ensuring that ownership is tracked carefully from the beginning is an important component to ensure shareholders understand the value of their investments. With the opportunity for companies with less than ten shareholders to license Astrella at no charge, there is no reason not to start tracking this information from day one. Adding Astrella to their list of products and services, incorporate.com provides new companies with an added benefit.”
