MEEK Announces Acceptance into The Conscious Venture Lab’s Accelerator Program

The lab will help the entrepreneurial educational platform achieve its mission of breaking down barriers to entrepreneurship, creating a more equitable entrepreneurial ecosystem across the globe

London, UK (4th June, 2021)—MEEK, an entrepreneurial education platform launching globally in July 2021, has announced its acceptance into the Conscious Venture Lab. MEEK will become part of the lab’s Accelerator Program as part of Cohort 7 beginning on June 14.

The Conscious Venture Lab is an early-stage business accelerator that collaborates with companies with missions to improve the overall good of humanity. The lab empowers these companies with the tools and resources to succeed and broaden their impacts. The organization was founded by Jeff Cherry, a CEO, entrepreneur, educator, and hedge fund manager with over 25 years of executive leadership experience.

Through its accelerator program, The Conscious Venture Lab brings together socially conscious companies and invites them to participate in a four-month long study of consciousness, capital, and customers. Through completing the rigorous course of study, MEEK will receive intensive mentor and peer networking and training opportunities to scale up their customer validation efforts. Companies successfully completing the program can also be considered for investment opportunities.

As an accepted member of Cohort 7, MEEK will join other socially conscious companies in Baltimore over the course of 17 weeks to learn how to build brands that support under-represented entrepreneurs and a more prosperous society through showing people how to achieve their dreams through entrepreneurship.

“We are thrilled to announced MEEK’s acceptance into The Conscious Venture Lab’s accelerator program,” said MEEK founder and CEO Xan Varmuza. “So many people are excluded from the current entrepreneurial economy because they don’t know where to start. MEEK seeks to break down these walls of inaccessibility and democratize entrepreneurship, and the support and education we will receive by participating in the accelerator program will help us achieve our mission.”

Set to launch in July 2021, MEEK seeks to transform how entrepreneurs conceive of, build, launch, and succeed in their business efforts. Through MEEK’s digital platform, student and aspiring entrepreneurs can connect with a network of mentors, resources, investors, and services designed to help them successfully launch their start-ups by leveraging the power of social connections and crowdsourcing expertise.
