At MetaProp we do things the right way. These are the values that drive our every move.

Founders First.

We back people, not companies.

We place our bets on people and idea(l)s. The dreamers and builders, the doers and fighters. Come to us, we’ve been looking for you.

Diversity Wins.

We’re all different and we love it.

We grow stronger through Diversity. We embrace diversity of people, experiences, ideas and opinions. It’s not only the right thing to do, it’s the smart thing to do. We know a culture of diversity leads to the best talent, investment, and partnership opportunities.

The Power of Community.

We’re stronger together.

We believe our Community is the ultimate multiplier and we take a community building approach to everything we do. From the way invest to the way we hire to the way we give back. Creating a collaborative environment for our entrepreneurs and our business partners is how we build.

Integrity. Every Time.

We do the right thing, because we want to.

We believe in growing our business with integrity. We want the best outcome for all our stakeholders and for ourselves and we understand there’s only one way to get there. The ethical way.

Long-Term Partnerships.

Together today, together tomorrow.

We know we can’t do this alone. Our partners are our lifeblood and a crucial part of the ecosystem we have built. We seek to foster long-term relationships with the most forward thinking and committed people and institutions, for the benefit of the larger ecosystem and our portfolio Founders.

Entrepreneurial Spirit.

We do more with less.

We’re entrepreneurial at heart. We understand what businesses need to grow because we’ve been entrepreneurs ourselves. Our entrepreneurial mindset, underpinned by our corporate experience, is our 1-2 punch.

Forever Improving.

Great today, greater tomorrow.

We’re obsessed with Continuous Improvement, Quality and Innovation. We commit to excellence and hold ourselves accountable for results. We approach everything we do with discipline, rigor and a curious mind. We recognize our failures and learn from our mistakes.
