Boosting knowledge to market
META drives knowledge from lab to market by coaching entrepreneurs, advising authorities on innovation-boosting strategies and investing in promising ideas.
They have over 25 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.
Built by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs, they have a unique edge in that they have experienced first-hand all stages of the entrepreneurial life-cycle.
META 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 they learn from financing startups underpins the practical advice they give cities and governments, for example, while promising META Academy entrepreneurs can benefit from training offered by real fund managers who know how to craft the perfect pitch.See more
