Our Investment Philosophy
Disruptive Tech for Basic Needs
Long-term Growth Investing
Emerging Market Audience
Full Operational Commitment
We seek proven technologies that disrupt basic needs (e.g. utilities, water, farming systems, universities) through better resource distribution.
We provide the end-user our core value proposition: “The same or better for cheaper.”
We aim to be owners and/or introducers of disruptive tech in target markets.
We take long positions in our projects, allowing our solutions to achieve full potential. To this end, we deploy significant financial resources for projects in operational hard assets and capex.
We focus our projects in emerging markets where high costs, lack of accessibility, and poor infrastructure are challenges for all basic needs industries.
Our team’s deep on-the-ground experience gives us a key advantage in aligning stakeholders and delivering results.
We have at least one Bainbridge partner in an active Director role to provide C-level management support during start-up & growth stages of our portfolio companies.
We ensure success in project sourcing and business development, while maintaining an advisory stakeholder role.
