Go Beyond Investing and the private equity firm, Bamboo Capital Partners, have entered a strategic partnership. Go Beyond will provide the investment team and access to deal flow and Bamboo will provide overall fund management in addition to impact measurement to select investments.

Bamboo Capital Partners is a commercial private equity firm that invests mainly in energy, finance, and health care. It has about $290m under management and a portfolio of 33 companies in over 20 countries. Bamboo has established itself as a pioneering impact investor and has a particularly strong network of family offices across Europe, Middle East & Africa. The firm is based in Geneva with additional offices in Luxembourg, Bogota, Nairobi and Singapore.

Go Beyond Investing, with its track record and a business angel community, has established itself as one of Europe’s preeminent early stage investors across Fintech, Healthcare, Consumer/Retail and B2B Services. Go Beyond has invested €23m in European and US startups since 2008. Today, the firm has over 70 active portfolio companies.

Bamboo and Go Beyond have now joined forces to jointly capture the market opportunity of European early-stage growth businesses, using technology as a core part of their operating model, and the frequent gap between angel investors and Series A & B investment.

The Go Beyond community will benefit from Bamboo’s network, and Bamboo will get access to deal flows in the future. The collaboration also results in geographical synergies of the two companies with a combined global presence.

Christopher Rolfe, CEO at Go Beyond Investing, said: “At present, there is an untapped opportunity in the European market to invest in early-stage companies that have the potential to grow significantly if given the necessary and appropriately timed investment. Through our partnership with Bamboo, we are aiming to capture these compelling opportunities and to increase the capital available to entrepreneurs.”

Florian Kemmerich, Managing Partner at Bamboo Capital Partners, said: “Bamboo has always been a pioneering firm that has sought to push the boundaries, with the partnership with Go Beyond another example of this. We will bring value to the partnership through access to our network of family offices, whilst also providing the overall fund management and select impact measurements. We look forward to working with Christopher and his team and are confident that our partnership with Go Beyond will be a long and fruitful one.”
