Metabolic Ventures

Building organizations that embed new economic principles and help transform our economic system to a fundamentally sustainable state.

Our mission is to implement new economic principles by building and supporting ventures that address critical societal challenges.

Metabolic Ventures believes that a new economic system is necessary, entrepreneurial organizations can be vehicles for systems change, and that governance and finance represent critical leverage points for innovation. We work to make it easier for entrepreneurs and their stakeholders to build deeply impactful organizations.

We build new ventures and venture programs, innovate upon models for financing, governance, and collaboration, and support other organizations in adopting principles to build ventures suited for a new economy.
