Bridges Fund Management (formerly Bridges Ventures) is a specialist private equity fund manager focused exclusively on sustainable and impact investment. Bridges invests in growth businesses, properties and social sector organizations that generate positive impact, and strong investor returns, through the services they offer or the markets they support. 

Bridges was launched in 2002 with the belief that hands-on investment and entrepreneurial talent could be used to tackle pressing social and environmental challenges, while also driving sustainable growth. Since then it has raised almost £1 billion across a variety of fund strategies. Bridges is based in the UK and has offices in New York and San Francisco.

Bridges also has an in-house advisory service, Bridges Impact+, that works to build the wider sustainable and impact investing sector. It has facilitated the Impact Management Project, an initiative bringing together hundreds of industry practitioners from around the world to find a consensus on the fundamentals of how we talk about, measure, and manage the impact of our investments and businesses.
