For those of you out there looking for funders for your business idea, see the press release I was sent below:
On the heels of Willie Nelson’s cannabis brand getting serious investment, Snoop Dogg launching a cannabis media empire with venture money, and the impending prospect of new California cannabis regulations, more than 200 high net worth investors from around the world are eager to invest in the fastest growing industry in America will gather in Los Angeles, CA at the ArcView Investor Forum. The ArcView Investor Network includes more than 500 accredited investor members who have put more than $52 million behind 78 cannabis-related companies. Taking place at the LA Downtown Hotel for a two day “Shark Tank”-like pitch forum on Tuesday, September 29th and Wednesday, September 30th, accredited investors will be reviewing pitches from more than 25 companies who competed fiercely for the pitch slots out of a field of hundreds of applicants. It will be the highest concentration of capital and key players to ever assemble for the industry.
“The best entrepreneurial minds and the sharpest investors are turning their attention to the fastest growing industry in America: the cannabis industry. ArcView is where the deals that will make future headlines are made,” said Troy Dayton, CEO and co-founder of The ArcView Group.
