CapBridge was started in 2015, leveraging on technology to match professional institutional investors to curated opportunities.
We open up these deals to co-investors who are normally family offices and can ride alongside professional institutional investors. We also allow co-investors and retail investors to participate with a smaller investment amount.

Why we started CapBridge
We started CapBridge with the vision to help entrepreneurs and to address a need.
The companies of tomorrow require growth capital and smart investors to help them achieve their development objectives. Entrepreneurs must have the ability to raise appropriate growth capital and to refresh and manage their investor base, and provide liquidity to align employees and stakeholders. Investors would also want the option to recycle some of their earlier capital.
Our offering is a combination of business needs, technology and innovation, created as a direct response to the radical changes and needs in the markets and regulatory environments.
The ideal growth capital is obtained when investors share deals – deal sharing leads to network effect which leads to better outcomes. Companies want a good blend of investors – a good professional institutional investor to price, conduct diligence and structure deals, and at the same time, having co-investors to enlarge the round, diversify the investor base and expand coverage.
Professional institutional investors, in turn, want to spread their risk, and leverage on co-investors. Co-investors benefit by tagging along on the knowledge and due diligence of the professional institutional investor and have access to deals that they otherwise may not be able to do.
Smaller ticket sized retail investors can also participate via our Preferred Access which allows for investments across all live deals for portfolio diversification. This all leads to positive reinforcements, which leads to better outcomes for all.
We believe an integrated approach with a primary capital raise, and a secondary trading platform (www.1x.exchange) is the way forward in improving liquidity and capital by providing a holistic avenue for deserving growth companies to fundraise, and for these businesses to thereafter have yet another avenue to monetise and recycle capital. This is beneficial in many ways to the various market participants, and for the wider capital market ecosystem.
The CapBridge primary capital raising platform was built to facilitate growth for both companies and investors. We bring the pipeline, and allow various growth opportunities to be discovered and matched, in a secure, regulated and process-optimised environment.
