A new leap forward
Fire, printing, steam, electricity, the internet―humanity has historically progressed forward through new general purpose technologies, unprecedentedly enriching societies and its people. Artificial intelligence has the potential to be more transformative than any other technological leap before.

At Merantix, we are embedded in a global AI ecosystem through which we maintain strong ties to industry partners, AI researchers and leading European AI investors. We aspire to drive value and transform industries – in Europe and beyond. Mastering a complex technology as well as multilayered commercial and regulatory challenges, Merantix combines AI expertise and an ample network in order to build the category leaders of tomorrow.
