Welcome to Bristol Private Equity Club

Early in 2016 Jerry Barnes suggested to some Bristol Entrepreneurs the idea of a Private Equity Club. Jerry was involved with a successful Private Equity Club in London and could see how, with the right people involved, the concept would work in Bristol,

Bristol has the growing businesses, the entrepreneurs with experience and some spare capital and there is a huge amount of goodwill for our city. What perhaps was needed was a process at matching the Businesses with the Capital and Skills. The Bristol Private Equity Club provides that process, our very own Dragon’s Den!

Covid-19: An update from BPEC

We will be supporting Bristol’s entrepreneurs by reaching out to all the companies in our portfolio to offer them advice and support during these challenging times.

Unfortunately we have had to cancel our planned panel events, including the one on 25 March, until further notice. We will advise when we are able to reinstate these.

Likewise, we have had to close our doors to all new pitches but again, we will advise when we are in a position to accept and review applications again.

We are doing our utmost to complete deals in the pipeline that have already reached an advanced stage.

Please see our latest press release for more information.
