Backing high-growth,

We invest in lower middle-market businesses operating in sectors such as healthcare, energy and environmental services, and education. We focus primarily on companies located in or serving underserved communities.

As a hands-on investor, we work in close partnership with the entrepreneurs we back. Our team (and network of advisors) have extensive experience of helping growth companies to scale. We proactively engage with management on social and environmental issues, helping them not just to mitigate risks but to identify value creation opportunities.

We look to partner with ambitious management teams who see this opportunity and want to build a high-growth business that makes a difference.

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.
Stephen Boobyer, CEO, World of Books
