Bridges Evergreen Holdings

Evergreen is an innovative new permanent capital vehicle designed to provide patient capital and hands-on support to ambitious mission-led businesses.

Evergreen will make equity or quasi-equity investments in profit-with-purpose companies, public sector spin-outs, social sector organisations and employee-owned businesses that are looking for an engaged, mission-aligned partner.

Evergreen is the successor to the Bridges Social Entrepreneurs Fund, one of the first funds in the world designed specifically for investment in social businesses.

A long-term partnership

Mission-led organisations have a vital role to play in tackling some of the big challenges we face. But they often find it difficult to access the long-term funding and support they need to scale.

Evergreen allows us to be a long-term partner for these organisations. It is structured as a holding company rather than a fund, producing yield for investors via dividends and loan interest – so it has no requirement to seek exits. This means we can work with management teams over a much longer time horizon, drawing on our experience to provide strategic and operational support in addition to financial capital. Over time, this will help these organisations to grow faster and deliver more impact.

The investment came at a critical time for CASA and enabled us to achieve a step-change in our growth… Bridges has provided hands-on support as we looked to restructure the business and strengthen our management controls and reporting. As a result, we now have the organisational capacity to take on more Government contracts.
Dr Guy Turnbull, Managing Director of CASA
