Boosting knowledge to market
META combines venture capital fund management, entrepreneurial training and innovation consultancy into an integrated Platform for transforming knowledge into entrepreneur-driven growth.
We have over 20 years' hands-on experience investing in high-growth companies across Europe, and helping Institutions, governments, regions and cities around the world foster more of them.
Developed by entrepreneurs, our unique Platform is built on three pillars:
- META Investment: investing in high-growth startups across Europe
- META Academy: nurturing and guiding young people, entrepreneurs & scientists as they transform ideas into high-growth startups
- META Advisory: policy advice on stimulating innovation and startups to clients as diverse as individual cities and the European Commission
Each pillar supports the others – what we learn from financing startups underpins the practical advice we give cities and governments, for example, while promising META Academy entrepreneurs are introduced to our venture capital fund managers (and are often trained by them).
