38 Seymour Street

Charles Booth's former home

In 2014 Bridges Ventures’s offices moved to a new location to accommodate our expanding team.

Our new home at 38 Seymour Street was a natural choice. The site was once home to Charles Booth (1840-1916), the businessman, philanthropist and sociologist, famous for his research into working class life in London.

Booth’s ‘Poverty Map of London’ was a predecessor of today’s Index of Multiple Deprivation, used by our team to identify the geographies for our Underserved Markets theme; one of our four investment themes, alongside Health & Wellbeing, Education & Skills and Sustainable Living.
