creating great companies…led by great people
To begin, BigBamboo does “not” sell Bamboo.
We create companies based on ideas conceived solely, for better or worse, from the mind of the founder- Stephen Meade.
BigBamboo acts as a creator, incubator and accelerator for ideas brought forth by Mr. Meade.
As a company we do not invest in other people’s ideas, do outside consulting, or provide marketing services. Instead, we take ideas and bring them to market; from concept to creation.
The goal is to take an idea, create a company, find world class advisers to flesh out the idea, and then, if warranted, build a team around it and attempt to bring the company to market.
Whether it is a flash, an inspiration, or comment made by someone in passing, a kernel of an idea often presents itself. Some of the ideas are acted upon, some sit and wait, and some are discarded for various reasons. We strive to take an idea from visualization, to creation, to actualization. Acting as a sort of business architect, we look to surround the company with the best and brightest people in their area of expertise.
The Goal of BigBamboo is to create companies that fill a “gap” in an industry. These gaps may be very narrow in scope, but deep in opportunity. Many of these “gaps” are thoughts or actions that most people do or use in their everyday lives, yet only certain, esoteric minds visualize improvement, expansion and creation.
Building a company takes many things including but not limited to – faith, persistence, patience, and belief. Additionally, it takes a solid foundation, good structure, and deep roots to be successful. From building an advisory board to pursuing top flight management and execution teams, the need for belief and persistence is paramount.
The name BigBamboo was taken as a metaphor for growing actual Chinese Bamboo trees and how it relates to building companies. While it is often asked if we sell bamboo, the answer is definitely no (at least not yet).
We DO however attempt to grow companies that can experience massive growth, fulfill a niche role and be supported by deep roots of talented management, expertise and experience.
If you don’t know the story of the Chinese Bamboo Tree, it’s worth a read.
