Inflexion is pleased to announce it has made a minority investment in The Goat Agency (“Goat”), the global social media and influencer marketing agency. The investment is being made by Inflexion Enterprise Fund V, Inflexion’s lower mid‐market fund.
Founded in 2015, Goat is a social media marketing agency focused on helping big brands to use influencer marketing effectively.
