Metabolic Ventures supports game-changing organizations to make scalable impacts. Five pillars support our mission:
Building a globally scalable organization can be truly daunting. We offer education programs and coaching opportunities to support individuals and teams in understanding systems thinking, prototyping, organization building, and particular sectors.
Relationships are important to grow a successful organization. Metabolic Ventures is a node that brings together ventures, students, investors, public policy innovators, industry experts, cleantech companies, and research institutes. We host events and online tools that facilitate and maintain fruitful connections between people.
Developing and growing a venture, particularly one focused on making things, requires having access to the right materials, equipment, and environment. Great facilities can make the difference between a nice concept and customers who love your product, which is why so many startups grow out of university labs. Metabolic Ventures continues to expand access to prototyping, manufacturing, and working places for the venture community we support.
Metabolic Ventures becomes a stakeholder in organizations that have a strong team and systemic approach to solving global challenges. We accelerate ventures at two different phases. 1st phase ventures are supported to acquire initial investment and/or launching customers. 2nd phase ventures, having already received initial funding and an initial customer base, are supported for to acquire growth financing and/or a broadly expanded customer base.
The democratization of production, digital currencies and open knowledge create opportunities to experiment with new economic models. We offer financial services to its members and manage investment funds that seek long-term partnerships with aligned ventures. We also experiment with digital currencies, impact accounting, and alternative business models.
