Rave Reviews About Julie Meyer
Julie’s book [Welcome to Entrepreneur Country] has changed so much of the way I think about things...thank YOU.....your citation 'think big, start small, act fast' on the back of your book is what I've realized defines the 30% Club journey — I didn't appreciate that at the time, but now it all makes sense that's how things have 'happened' with that project, way exceeding other ventures I've been involved with.

She trusts people's ingenuity to solve the world's problems at both the macro and micro levels — and to expand prosperity.

In 1998 Julie founded First Tuesday, the network of entrepreneurs which many credit for igniting the internet generation in Europe. It was sold in July 2000 for $50 million in cash and shares. She then founded Ariadne Capital in August 2000 to create a new model for the financing of entrepreneurship in Europe and the UK: that of "Entrepreneurs Backing Entrepreneurs." She created the founding Investor Partnership of 62 leading entrepreneurs and business builders who are Ariadne Capital's core shareholders and is the Managing Partner of the Ariadne Capital Entrepreneurs Fund. Ariadne Capital has backed seven explosive growth companies in its first 13 years: Espotting, Skype, Monitise, SpinVox, Zopa, BeatThatQuote and SoundOut. At Ariadne Capital Julie has led investments and/or transactions with Medikidz, Quill, Taggstar, BeatThatQuote, Espotting, Monitise, SpinVox, and Zopa.

She is on the Board of Directors of Vestergaard Frandsen, a for-profit humanitarian development firm, and INSEAD, her former business school, which named her one of their 50 Alumni Who Changed the World. The University of Warwick gave her an Honorary Doctorate of Laws in 2014.
