Having successfully invested their first fund, the partners set about raising a second fund to invest in ambitious SMEs. In May, the partners were delighted to announce they had raised £140m (you know where to go if you’re looking for investment capital to fund growth or an MBO!).
In addition to this, WestBridge made four senior hires and opened a third office, this time in Manchester.
In short, it has been an extremely busy year and one that has firmly established WestBridge as a mainstream player in the private equity market.
Of course, all of this positivity needed to be reflected in their external communications.
Naturally, we secured lots of media coverage about these landmark events but we also developed fresh new branding, including a shortened name, and created a spanking new website.
This stellar year for WestBridge has been acknowledged with them being shortlisted in the British Private Equity Awards, which will be announced in November.
