Capitalizing on impact advantage
We have shown that commercial success and positive societal impact can go hand-in-hand
Since 2002, Bridges has developed a platform of funds to invest in companies that are tackling some of society’s most pressing challenges – by creating jobs in underserved areas; by delivering better health or education outcomes; by finding innovative way to reduce carbon emissions; and more.
Like you, we believe that business can be a powerful force for good
The U.S. continues to face considerable social and environmental challenges. We believe that by supporting innovative lower middle market businesses to address these challenges, we can tap into dynamic, demand-driven markets – allowing us to deliver attractive financial returns to our investors alongside positive, measurable impact.
We have a proven value creation model, powered by expert insight
We focus on backing investable solutions to social and environmental challenges in four areas: health & wellness, education & skills, sustainable living and underserved markets.
This thematic, challenge-driven approach helps us to build expertise and talent networks in sectors where long-term trends are driving sustainable demand. It helps us align with visionary teams in search of an investor who not only understands their market but also shares their values. And it helps us identify the areas where we can make a real difference – to our partners and to the challenges they seek to address.Our Approach
