BGF has a proud history of working with businesses and entrepreneurs in Cambridge and the surrounding area. We have actively engaged with entrepreneurs and opportunities across the region since the inception of BGF in 2011.

In 2019, BGF opened its first Cambridge office, enabling us to expand our team and strengthen our focus on established small and medium-sized enterprises, offering an entrepreneur-friendly business funding option for growing businesses. We continue to work with businesses across all sectors, while actively extending our support for earlier stage life science and tech businesses who have ambitious growth plans.

With an evergreen balance sheet, BGF is not a traditional investment fund. Our model is to invest as a minority shareholder without imposing exit deadlines or strict timelines for exit. This allows us to closely partner with founders and management teams, enabling them to set the pace for growth, and, crucially, retain control.

See what we do and learn how we provide a source of funding that’s different by design. You can review our portfolio and read success stories of businesses like yours that have joined our Cambridge portfolio.

We are thrilled to be strengthening our presence in Cambridge, in response to the volume of interesting businesses we see in the region. Cambridge is a clear hub for innovation across a broad array of sectors, and we are excited to be partnering with local teams at the forefront of their fields.
