About Madrona Venture Labs

Madrona Venture Labs is the startup studio and incubation arm of Madrona Venture Group – the leading venture capital firm in the Pacific Northwest. Together, we partner with founders from day one to build venture-scale companies focused on AI-driven applications, automation, Web3, next-gen infrastructure, and the future of work. 

About Metastitch

The emergence of Web3 has introduced new ways for businesses to engage with their customers while building impactful and enduring communities. Recognizing the power and potential of Web3 for businesses, Metastitch was founded to build the first community growth platform for brands in Web3.

We give businesses the tools to grow their Web3 communities. Our platform powers insights to drive authentic engagement and growth by converting and consolidating Web3 communities into configurable, flexible databases. We also offer tools to navigate the inherent opaqueness of the Web3 landscape to intentionally identify and engage with new customers.

Metastitch is backed by Madrona Venture Labs and is based in Seattle, Washington.
