Bristol & Bath Regional Capitalbreakthrough
At the heart of BBRC is a public/private/social partnership seeking to help local people, companies and institutions in the West of England to work together to improve their lives and to encourage deeper civic engagement. We do this by mobilising local and external resources to invest in commercially viable projects and enterprises that enhance the social, environmental and economic fabric of the West of England.
Our ambition is to become a significant and commercially sustainable driving force in the development of the region, nurturing innovation and social change by facilitating local collaboration in developing ideas, securing and deploying positive investment funds.
We provide investment readiness services such as working with entrepreneurs and visionaries to document and improve business plans and financial models through business mentoring to achieve greater social impact and financial returns. We also work with established organisations helping them effectively target investors for specific social impact projects.
We do this by working with clients to understand their vision and preferred social impact, drawing from our wealth of business and social impact experience to make that vision a reality. We work with clients to formalise business plans and financial models, working alongside them to build capacity and making recommendations to help clients optimise business plans and tweak approaches to implement effectively and have the greatest social impact.
Once business plans and financial models are fit for purpose, we are able to reach out to our comprehensive network of investors and provide a summary of potential funding options, tailored to each idea, helping them put dreams into reality. Once options have been reviewed and preferable options selected, we work with clients and investors to negotiate favourable terms helping them implement projects, set up organisations and achieve social and financial impact
