Bridge Venture Partners, LLC (“BVP”) is a boutique investment bank specializing in the representation of mid-market companies ($1 million to $20 million in EBITDA). Our track record of success is based on six core factors:
Our existing stable of financing sources is constantly being revised and updated so we always know who is interested in which industry spaces and has capital available to invest. For many years, we have been establishing relationships with institutional investors unsurpassed, we believe, by any other mid-market investment banking firm. Because in our early years we represented many institutional investors in seeking out investment opportunities, we have a ready-made audience of several hundred of such investors, world wide, for each growth capital assignment.
Our broad reach gives us another advantage, speed of execution. Once an offering is circulated by us, we can often present our clients with twenty or more interested parties within 60 days.
We will never try to win your business by promising to achieve a valuation, a closing schedule or a fund raise that cannot be achieved. We would rather under-promise and surprise you.
BVP prides itself on the professional conduct of the offering process itself. The company was founded on the principal that mid-market deals deserve the same high-level investment banking representation as much larger transactions. We believe that our documentation matches those produced by major investment banks on Wall Street and that the process we run from first “indications of interest” to final closing are the equal of any other investment bank.
BVP believes in keeping its clients constantly updated during the offering process. One of the advantages of a smaller boutique, such as BVP, is that you will have the attention of a senior banker at all times. And that senior banker will always keep you well informed as to the progress of your deal.
Confidentiality is our strong suit. Because we have so many established relationships, most of our financing sources have pre-existing obligations of confidentiality. We are also extremely adept at gauging interest on the basis of information no financing source could use to identify the target company without prior client approval.
