WELCOME TO

Our journey so far.

Founded in 2016 on the belief that “innovation cannot happen in isolation”, Mettā embarked on an ambitious journey to become the world’s first, and most importantly, neutral, innovation superconnector—creating bridges across international networks and ecosystems for the benefit of global progress.

With physical hubs located in Hong Kong and Nairobi, our spaces have become central nexus points for the innovation community—welcoming everyone from visionary entrepreneurs and industry catalysts, to world-renowned scientists and global business leaders.
