About Big Bamboo, LLC.

BigBamboo, LLC is a holding company, started by Stephen Meade in 2000.

It is not a company that sells a product, instead, it serves as an incubator to start and scale ideas that are all started by the Founder- Stephen Meade.

BigBamboo does not invest in outside ideas, but instead takes concepts from visualization to creation and if viable, raises capital to bring them to market.

The philosophy behind BigBamboo is to create companies that fill a gap in an industry, often based on everyday actions or needs that are overlooked by others.

Stephen Meade created a concept called “Retrospective Evolution”, where he will look backwards into what has worked in the past, and then overlay ideas with new technologies of the future.

Through the years, there have been many companies started; some worked, some didn’t, and for others, the jury is still out.

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.
