Bamboo Capital Partners is an impact investing platform which provides innovative financing solutions to businesses in emerging markets serving the needs of low- and middle income populations, thus catalysing lasting impact. We bridge the gap between seed and growth stage funding through a full suite of finance options – from debt to equity – which we activate unilaterally or through strategic partnerships. Bamboo is a partner of Palladium, a global impact firm with operations in 90 countries.
We invest mainly in four sectors – financial inclusion, access to clean energy, access to healthcare and agribusiness – where we see mass-market opportunities for high growth and social impact. In each of them, technology and data analysis provide the opportunity to scale access to essential services for low- to middle-income populations.
In terms of access to energy, we are at the forefront in proving mass-market access to clean energy through innovative distribution business models and off-grid technology comprising providers of solar energy systems with pay-as-you-go methodology, mini-grid developers and operators, distributors of productive use energy systems, remote monitoring of the systems and data analytics. Besides, Bamboo Capital Partners manages Result-Based Financing programmes and other off-grid solar market development programmes.
