Company Overview

Bridge Bank was founded in the highly competitive climate of Silicon Valley in 2001, and continues to provide a full suite professional business banking services. From the very beginning, our goal has been to offer small-market and middle-market businesses from across many industries a better way to bank.

A less bank-like way to bank.

We provide a surprisingly broad range of financial solutions, enabling us to meet our clients’ varied needs across all stages — from inception to IPO and beyond. It’s how we go about doing so that differentiates us from our competition.

Like so many of the people we serve, the entrepreneurial spirit pumps through our veins. We don’t offer the one-size-fits-all solutions served up by most business banks. Instead, our uniquely qualified bankers start with a clean sheet of paper, and then custom craft real-world, highly flexible solutions that accommodate our clients’ specific business needs.

Our way of banking is not about sitting across a desk from our customers. It's about sitting next to them at the table, as partners in their plans to build a better mousetrap. Or maybe even change the world.  
It’s about bankers who provide a level of attention and immediacy of response unheard of in our industry.

Our mission is to take our clients from Point A to Point B, where B stands for "Beyond." Beyond their expectations. Beyond their competition. Beyond their wildest dreams.

If that’s what you’re looking for, welcome. We’re eager to get started.
