For many years now, Metrontario has been investing in a variety of venture capital projects in Israel, and has acquired controlling interests in a number of companies there. Metrontario recognized that there was opportunity to access a pool of talented engineers and scientists doing state-of-the-art research in various fields. Although these venture capital investments are a small part of its portfolio, Metrontario is proud of the accomplishments of the staff and researchers working on its behalf. The venture capital projects are in fields as diverse as biotechnology and ecological tourism, while Metrontario’s own companies operate in the fields of nuclear medicine, environmental development and marine agriculture.
