Bamboo is a tech start up founded in Dublin, Ireland, which lets users pre-order from their favourite cafés and restaurants, enabling them to skip the queue with a seamless cashless experience that also automates loyalty rewards.

We have been working with the founders, Luke and Alan, since 2015 when they started with the concept. We were the first investor that enabled them to build their minimal viable product, which then soon led to a EUR 50,000 investment from Enterprise Ireland’s Competitive Start Fund. Bamboo has quickly grown to be a team of 10 in over 100 cafes and restaurants in Dublin and Cork. We supported them through a successful EUR 500,000 seed capital raise, which included a EUR 225,000 follow on investment from Enterprise Ireland’s High Potential Start Up programme, as well as a follow on investment from ourselves and other angel investors.

Starting a new company brings many challenges, and to enable the Luke, Alan and the team to focus on rapid growth we provide full accounting, compliance and strategic finance support. We are also actively working with the Bamboo team and Enterprise Ireland on new market launches, including Singapore.

The team at Bamboo are building a high quality product, team and company and its been great to partner closely with them on their journey from the start.

“ We’ve been fortunate to have a great partner in Stepping Stone from the get go, who have been instrumental in helping us turn an idea into a funded and fast growing business. In addition to providing us holistic accounting and finance support, they are a great sounding board for us across the business. We also would not have been thinking about new export markets so early without their insights and know how. ”
