Bridges Social Entrepreneurs Fund

Delivered by Bridges Ventures LLP

The Bridges Social Entrepreneurs Fund aims to address the funding gap often faced by fast-growing social enterprises that want to scale. Seeded by the Bridges Charitable Trust in 2008, the fund was launched in August 2009 and has raised nearly £12m for investment in scalable social enterprises and charities delivering high social impacts and operating sustainable business models. The Bridges team works closely with social entrepreneurs to help them realise their ambitions and maximise their social impact. Each investment is tailored to ensure that it fits the needs of each particular social enterprise, while also allowing the fund to make a sufficient financial return to support a sustainable funding model for social sector organisations.
