Bridget was Investment Director at New Zealand Venture Investment Fund (now New Zealand Growth Capital Partners) for nine years. As Investment Director for the Seed Co-Investment Fund (SCIF), a $50m early stage investment Fund, she was involved in implementing the full review of the investment programme and was responsible for overseeing the investment activity across the fund. She was a member of the investment committee for NZVIF, reviewing both early-stage and venture capital investment opportunities.
