Established in 2018, Bridges Israel is an impact investment fund which invests in Israeli businesses to generate competitive financial returns alongside significant measurable social and environmental impact.
We aim to inspire, generate and support commercial solutions to local and global societal and environmental challenges that benefit the underserved. Doing so we also strive to help mainstreaming Impact Investing in Israel and boosting the Impact Tech ecosystem.
The fund is an independent affiliate of Bridges Fund Management and shares the same underlying investment philosophy and practices.
Despite 30 years of tremendous economic growth, inequality in Israel is higher than in most advanced economies.
