ABOUT US

BACKGROUND

Harbor Ridge Capital (HRC) is a leading technology-focused mergers and acquisitions advisory firm, working with lower middle market growth companies ($5-50mm in revenue), advising on strategic initiatives such as acquisitions or raising institutional capital. HRC focuses on sub verticals such as tech-enabled services (cloud services, managed IT services), software and internet marketing. Understanding that entrepreneurs should stay focused on running their businesses, we complement management teams seamlessly, in running organized yet thorough processes for institutional capital or an acquisition, and managing the process from start to finish, en route to a closing. When working with HRC, entrepreneurs can be assured their companies will be optimally positioned, properly exposed to the right strategic investors and buyers, and allowed for the highest probability of a close, at the right valuation. We look forward to discussing your opportunity and sharing our insights.

TESTIMONIALS

“Without Cyrus and HRC, the transaction that BlackMesh went through would not have been possible. Every step of the way, Cyrus was engaged, proactive, and became part of the team.”

Jason Ford
Co-founder and CTO BlackMesh

“I have worked with Cyrus and Harbor Ridge Capital over the last couple years in identifying strategic partnerships that can benefit our organization. His abilities to analyze new opportunities and pursue the latest trends sets his organization apart from many investments groups focused on the IT industry. I look forward to working with Cyrus on the M&A side in the coming months, but also seek his guidance within the industry on any new opportunities that arise. His experience and knowledge are valuable to any client that wishes to succeed.”

“The team at Harbor Ridge has helped us walked through both an acquisition and a sale exercise. Their knowledge, professionalism, and participation leading both scenarios were extremely helpful. It’s a valuable thing when you find a resource that is both a pleasure to work with and has an all-encompassing expertise. I consider them an important player on my team of advisors.”
