Backing high-growth, high-impact businesses

We believe businesses that are responding to long-term trends and helping to solve pressing societal challenges have a compelling growth opportunity in the next decade.

Since 2002, Bridges has been partnering with ambitious management teams who see this opportunity and want to build high-growth businesses that make a difference – particularly in areas like healthcare, education and the environment, where we have accumulated a wealth of specialist expertise.

Our capital – financial, human and intellectual – helps our businesses to accelerate their growth and realise their potential.

We chose Bridges as an investor because we felt they shared our values, understood our sector and shared our vision of what World of Books can achieve in the future.
