Focused on Entrepreneurs

We believe in the risk takers, the game-changers and the disrupters — those committed to leveraging innovation to make the world a better place. And because we ourselves are entrepreneurs, we understand firsthand the challenges faced by young startups, allowing us to solve problems that other banks can’t even see. Entrepreneurs will drive the future economic growth of our economy — Bridge Bank provides the financial solutions to enable their success.

Private Equity and Venture Capital Networks

Bridge Bank is deeply rooted in the business community, and highly networked with firms throughout the country who provide venture capital and private equity investments to companies seeking the financial resources to grow. We’ve partnered with a wide range of investors on deals of various sizes, from mergers and acquisitions to corporate buyouts and IPOs. Yet, we remain committed to building relationships that endure beyond financial transactions.

Credit Solutions*

Working Capital Lines of Credit.
This flexible revolving line of credit may be utilized to support increasing assets in a growing company. Lines may be formula-based or non-formula-based depending upon your business needs, and may help conserve cash and improve relationships with suppliers.

Equipment Financing. Bridge Bank provides term loans to finance purchase of equipment, acquisition of product lines or business operations, tenant or leasehold improvements, permanent additions to working capital, and to refinance existing debt.

Bridge Loans. Bridge loans provide short-term working capital that will bridge a company to a well-defined liquidity/equity event.

Growth Capital/Venture Debt.  Venture debt allows companies to leverage their equity capital while adding “runway,” thereby providing the dual benefit of reduced dilution and the potential to achieve greater step-ups in valuation between equity rounds. Venture debt provides flexibility not found with investors.

Corporate Credit Cards. A line of credit can be established for the purpose of issuing individual corporate credit cards. This allows for effective control of corporate purchases, travel and entertainment expenses and provides management complete flexibility in issuing and canceling cards as needed.

Asset-Based Lending Solutions. In keeping with our mission to accommodate a client’s unique needs, we offer asset-based lending in addition to traditional corporate banking solutions.

*All offers of credit are subject to credit approval
