We are
place makers

BBRC’s mission is to improve the wellbeing of people, local communities, and the environment in the South West of England.

Purposeful businesses can create the solutions we need for the future we want. When they join forces across a region, we call them place makers. As a place-based investor, we channel the flow of capital into these problem-solving businesses – ensuring money gets to where it’s needed to create a flourishing and diverse regional economy.

Portfolio highlights

We invest in real estate, infrastructure and businesses to deliver attractive returns for investors and strong social, economic and environmental outcomes. We’ve raised and placed over £60m for place making businesses and projects in our region.

How we can help you

We create significant local impact by raising and delivering investment to address longstanding inequalities, tackle environmental issues and responsibly manage property assets, leading to strong outcomes for investors and communities alike. We invest across sectors to create a flourishing regional economy.

Investment can get your vision off the ground on your terms. We’ll design a loan that works for you and helps you make a difference for people and planet. We’ll connect you with local networks so you can find new supporters and partners.

Fund your impact with early-stage, second or later-stage capital through an equity or loan that keeps your vision front and centre as you scale. Our local market insights will also help you find new partners, customers and ways of working.
