CEO Thomas Rebaud's biography
Thomas Rebaud launched Meero at the age of 28 in 2016. He was driven by the idea to improve the lives of artists by allowing them to fully devote themselves to their passions of art and creation.
The story began in 2007, when Rebaud entered the EMLyon Business School. While still a student, he was the president of the Junior branch of the World Entrepreneurship Forum- an association with a global presence in 15 countries that aims to develop entrepreneurship as a vector of growth and employment. There, Thomas gained good knowledge on practices of entrepreneurship. In 2013, upon completion of his Master’s degree, Rebaud set up the first zero rate comparator company, that although was good in its core, was not able to take off. He tried his luck once again by finding Diji- a different kind of consulting and engineering firm. This time, the company became a success. The daily activities at Diji lead him to the discovery of a professional photography market that offered endless possibilities. At the time, Rebaud seized the opportunity and co-founded Meero.
Founded in 2016, Meero aims to revolutionize the world of photography by allowing photographers to dedicate themselves to their passion. From providing revenues and market research to invoicing, post-production, and delivery, Meero takes care of all the laborious, time-consuming tasks which plague the industry. Above all, the company aims to provide them with tools for file compatibility, CRM, marketing, and other daily needs. In addition to this, they'll have access to a series of educational masterclasses, inspiring documentaries, meetups with photographers in 35 different countries, a magazine in 4 different languages, and even a foundation supporting photography worldwide.
Meero also solves a major problem in the world of photography: photo editing. Normally 60 minutes of actual shooting will take up to 4 hours of extra post-production work. The cutting-edge content enrichment technologies the company is currently developing can reduce this time to a few seconds, solving the problems of long delivery times, inconsistent photo rendering and unfair prices.
Meero further gives artists the chance to work with major brands and take advantage of a whole range of solutions that simplify their work and make the production of beautiful images far easier.
These innovations allow brands, and soon individual consumers, to access made-to-measure photo and video solutions around the world. Meero manages the photoshoot process from beginning to end, guaranteeing unbeatable prices, delivery times of less than 24 hours and professional photo quality.
Today Meero is:
- The world's leading on-demand photography platform
- A suite of tools dedicated to photographers' activities; masterclasses, a magazine in four different languages, inspiring documentaries, a community of artists, and a foundation in support of photography
