Meero, which aims to improve the daily lives of photographers, has been nominated for the VivaTech Unicorn Awards for its hyper-growth. The nomination will be the chance for the startup to further assert itself in the growing scale-up world. Meero already has nearly 540 employees in 6 offices around the world, a community of 58,000 photographers, and 31,000 clients in more than 100 countries.
The company will be up against major scale-ups (Typeform, Shift Technology, Tessian, Snyk, Dataiku and GoCardless) that have been chosen as the other potential European startups valued at over a billion dollars. This could mean Meero joins the rank of the 38 other unicorns of Europe. The winners of this award co-organised by VivaTech and Publicis will be announced on the 16th May during the VivaTech festival.
Founded in 2016, Meero aims to revolutionise 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.
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 allows big brands to access tailor-made photo and video content from anywhere in the world. Meero manages the photoshoot process from beginning to end, guaranteeing unbeatable prices, delivery times of less than 24 hours and a regular, professional photo quality.

- The world leader in Artificial Intelligence photo editing
