Go Beyond Investing, the leading pan-European angel investing company, has announced that they have received CHF3m (€2.6m) from a strategic investor.  The investment will be used to continue to grow the business into new markets, to further develop the fintech platform and to raise funds for investing into European and US startups.

Mr. Punjabi was educated at the New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business in the United Sates and has been a long-time advocate of impact investing and entrepreneurship.

This is what I find so compelling about Go Beyond“ commented Mr. Punjabi.
