Bridger Pennington is the Founder of Black Bridge Capital: Privately run debt fund that has done over 142 deals in 38 states over the last 18 months. He helps people launch highly lucrative funds (PE, VC, Hedge, and Debt).

Ever since Bridger is a hustler, he was in First Year College when he started tutoring Chinese kids but stopped because it didn’t make much money. Then, he got in real estate and wholesaling for a while. Bridger grew up in a super entrepreneurial home. His family was living a very frugal life that anyone couldn’t imagine without knowing that his father had already started a successful funding business. Bridger was shocked, amazed, and inspired as he found out his father’s business, so he worked hard to learn everything about the fund.

Later, Bridger follows his father’s footsteps and builds his own fund business out from scratch without a penny from his father’s pocket. He figured out everything through advice and tips from his father. Bridger is a risk-taker who is not afraid of raising money and pitching his fund. He believes that it’s all about finding the right person to be your partner with.

Now, Bridger is coaching people on how to structure funds, find amazing investors and partners, and helping people understand what fund really is. Helping out people especially young guys raising millions of money to go out there and start their funds.
