Job Creation. New product development. New technology and services. Being a partner in the community. These are the principle reasons why Barnes Capital Management was formed. We are a family office and will often coinvest with other funds and family offices.

Many of the companies we have invested in have been acquired and some have accessed the capital markets through IPOs.
We generally invest in companies that are at the revenue stage and which are looking for capital to finance the next phase of growth. We will also invest in companies that are asset rich but cash poor in circumstances where the assets can be converted to cash within a reasonable time horizon.
We are privately held. We are passive investors. We do not rely on nor do we solicite investors outside our family.
