Bridges Ventures U.S. Sustainable Growth Fund invests in businesses that tackle societal challenges and whose growth is supported by strong underlying trends in Health & Wellness, Education & Skills, and Sustainable Living in the U.S.

Financial description

With proven expertise in the SME space, we believe SMEs are important engines of growth. These businesses often sit below the radar of mid-market investors and therefore face a limited supply of capital. We believe these drivers combine to create strong opportunities for investment and limited competition
We have developed a thematic focus on sectors where a pressing social or environmental need creates strong pockets of growth and the potential for robust returns and positive impacts.
We have attracted a high-caliber team who are motivated to use their operational and financial expertise to deliver superior returns for investors and society-at-large.
Demonstrated by our track record, our distinctive Responsible Investing approach of selecting businesses because of their potential impact and then engaging with them to drive both value and impact should prove attractive to private equity investors.

Impact Performance


Impact thesis

Bridges Ventures was founded in 2002 with the vision that hands-on investment and entrepreneurial talent can be used to drive sustainable growth as well as address some of the fundamental challenges facing our society. In 2014, Bridges expanded its operations to the U.S.
Bridges Ventures' investment strategy is to focus on opportunities where investments can generate attractive financial returns by meeting pressing social or environmental challenges. We invest in three domains: health & wellness, education & skills, and sustainable living, with a focus on businesses that serve or are located in underserved markets.
Bridges is committed not only to promoting financial and social returns through its own investments but also to supporting the growth of the wider sustainable and impact investment sectors. It is in this spirit that we have established Bridges Impact+, an advisory function within Bridges.
