​​​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

We 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, we have a unique edge in that we have experienced first-hand all stages of the entrepreneurial life-cycle. 

META is built on ​three pillars:

  • META Investmentinvesting in high-growth startups across Europe
  • META Academynurturing and guiding young people, entrepreneurs & scientists as they transform ideas into high-growth startups
  • META Advisorypolicy 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 can benefit from training offered by real fund managers who know how to craft the perfect pitch.
