Paul McCarthy, CEO

"Barry and CapF9 were instrumental to the seed round and follow-on rounds for SnapFix.  He guided us through the investment process and facilitated many sessions on the priorities, messages and the options, as well as making key investor introductions.  His practical no nonsense advice was very valuable and very much appreciated."


Richard Pike, CEO

"Barry and CapF9 played an important role in bringing our latest funding round to fruition. I’m delighted not only with the funding but also the influential and connected investor base that has been brought to the table by CapF9."

Alvan Hunt, CEO

"I first met Barry at a conference and within two months we were close to finalising a funding round. CapF9 played a pivotal role in this. Barry’s financial background proved to be invaluable in guiding and advising us as a company throughout the fundraising process.  Along with this, Barry has been a huge asset to the company in his role as an observer on the company board. If you are seeking to raise capital and to engage with an experienced investor, I would highly recommend CapF9."

Colm McLoughlin, CCO

"We first met Barry through the Startup Boost Ireland (2020) Program and are delighted we did.  Barry patiently sought to understand our business in a manner that was both curious, and supportive.  During the program we benefited from Barry's wisdom, guidance, and business advice, with lots of astute nudges along the way.  We felt genuinely supported and encouraged by Barry from day one and look forward to further developing the relationship between both our firms.   Life as a start-up founder is much easier with people like Barry on your side."
