This partnership greatly enhances our capacity to bring capital to entrepreneurial companies combining infrastructure and technology to create sustainable solutions.

Since 2008 Cameron Barney has been providing strategic financial advice to a range of entrepreneurial companies intent on building long-term sustainable businesses by deploying technology to improve infrastructure and the solutions and services that rely upon them.
