Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference

August 18, 2020 - Virtual Format

The Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference — a virtual event this year — takes place on Aug. 18, 2020. The event is part of a conference series, known for its international participation, that aims to match companies seeking capital with investors looking to place capital. The one-day event packs an exciting agenda that covers issues of interest to both operators and investors in the cannabis sector. As is typical with Benzinga events, the investor community will be well represented, as will stakeholders from all constituencies, including the largest growers and cultivators in the sector. Benzinga events are ideal for companies seeking capital, providing a platform for them to engage in the right type of collaborative conversations with prospective investors. Obversely, the gatherings allow providers of capital to get up close and personal with decision makers of the most viable cannabis enterprises.

The agenda for the Benzinga virtual Cannabis Capital Conference includes a session on recent regulatory developments in Michigan, with Andrew Brisbo and Brian Calley. Brisbo is executive director of Michigan’s Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA), while Calley is president of the Small Business Association of Michigan (SBAM). Another session — Stop Chasing & Start Attracting the Right VCs — will examine capital-raising issues and feature Matthew Nordgren, Roderick Stephan, Narbé Alexandrian and Douglass Hannah as presenters. Nordgren is CEO and founder of the ARCADIAN Fund, Stephan is partner at Altitude Investment Management, Alexandrian is president and CEO of Canopy Rivers, and Hannah is a managing director of private equity and real estate firm Silver Leaf Venture Partners. A third session — Rolling Out: What’s Next for Retailers in Adult-Use Recreational — will be devoted to merchandising and consumer market issues. The Benzinga virtual Cannabis Capital Conference offers opportunities to learn, develop and cultivate relationships as well as to raise or invest capital. Attendance is almost an obligation for anyone with an interest in the fast-developing cannabis sector.
