Bridges Israel, an impact investment fund that invests in Israeli businesses, aims to generate competitive financial returns alongside significant, measurable social and environmental positive impact. The company strives to inspire, generate, and support commercial solutions to local and global societal and environmental challenges that benefit the underserved. In doing so, it also wants to help mainstream Impact Investing in Israel and boost the Impact Tech ecosystem.
Quote: “We focus on two main challenges humanity is facing: climate-tech and social inequality. These are two themes that we are looking at, and they’re very much derived from the United Nations’ SDG [Sustainable Development Goals] parameters that were designated to be solved in the near future.
“In those fields, we look at companies that create a significant solution [in the space], a measurable one, one that is strongly aligned with the business that they have. We currently have 12 companies in the portfolio who operate in climate, ag-tech, digital health in the area of accessibility, and fair employment — and we’re eager to find more.”
