Growth and late-stage companies often face challenges in capital raising. Options commonly available include private financing, which can often be highly dilutive, a premature M&A, or an IPO. Investors are often concerned about exit pathways for these companies, in addition to less-than-ideal valuations.

CapBridge was developed to address these challenges. It is a world-class online platform that provides the best institutional investor experience with the latest analytic and processing features. We have built and integrated industry-leading software to enable enterprise-level security, accessibility, and availability. The CapBridge platform accelerates private information flow to a discreet audience and provides a tailored deal-flow process enabled by technology – offering companies and investors an alternative and more efficient fundraising pathway.

Headquartered in Singapore, CapBridge is the conduit to Asia investors seeking private opportunities. We connect to the demand for diversified, uncorrelated assets, as the wealth in Asia-Pacific continues to grow. Our platform enables the deal-flow process from origination and onwards, while also helping companies building investor engagement and brand visibility among their stakeholders.
