“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

“Cyrus from Harbor Ridge Capital is very knowledgeable and easy to work with an expert in his field. I very much enjoyed working with him and his team over the years. He provided valuable expertise for us in the colocation and hosting related M&A space. We highly recommend his services.”

Eric Hulbert
CEO Opus Interactive

“Rook and its partners have been working with Cyrus from Harbor Ridge Capital since 2006 when his former group arranged financing for our predecessor company. We’ve maintained a strong relationship with him over the years and explored various transactions up until the most recent, our acquisition of our largest competitor and market leader, in a highly complex transaction of international scope. Cyrus and HRC were invaluable in guiding us through the various hurdles and challenges of the deal process in route to a successful closing. Thanks to their tireless efforts on the transaction, we dramatically increased our equity value, and moved into position as the clear market leader in our industry, in both volume and service offerings. We plan to continue working with Cyrus for our future M&A needs, and are exploring many exciting potential opportunities already.”

Daniel Law
CEO Rook Media

“BurstNET has been working with Harbor Ridge Capital for nearly two years and it’s been a great experience. In addition to raising our first institutional financing earlier this year, Cyrus and the team have brought significant value to the table outside of the standard scope of work, including referring our current largest customer, advising us on hiring a much need controller, advising us on pushing forward with a financial review, and now, having identified and currently executing on highly accretive add-on acquisitions. I look forward to continuing our working relationship with Harbor Ridge Capital as we continue to grow and have future requirements.”
