Kahner Global held their February 11 event in Florida this week, The Cannabis Private Investment Summit, and Cannapreneur Partners was asked to speak to industry experts, entrepreneurs, and investors on critical topics that investors should consider.
Kahner Global specializes in curating high-level investor conferences and events. The Cannabis Private Investment Summits were launched in 2015 as the very first conferences exclusively for family offices in the cannabis industry. Since then, the summits have evolved as the premier highly curated summits for institutional investors, family offices and ultra-high net worth investors.
Cannapreneur Partners CEO Michael Scott was one of this year’s featured speakers. While there, he spoke about private placement strategies in cannabis investing, and laid out the roadmap entrepreneurs can be looking at as they aim to secure crucial funding for their enterprises, while also educating the family office world in attendance on how their private capital can be thoughtfully placed in legal cannabis.
Scott, who has raised over $35M for legal cannabis opportunities in the Massachusetts market, is leading the charge in cannabis investing through a “profits with purpose” mantra, and after successful investor events and networking meetups in the Northeast, is becoming a steady face on the national investment speaker circuit for the private capital placement audience seeking vetted cannabis opportunities across the industry.
With those kinds of bona-fides, it’s only natural that Scott would bump into and engage in stimulating dialogue with ex-NBA star Al Harrington, who launched cannabis brand Viola, which announced it had raised $16M in late 2019 through their partnership with Gotham Green Partners.
“Over the last five years, Viola has been dedicated to creating and producing quality herbal experiences for our customers,” said Harrington, CEO of Viola, in previous a statement. “With the financial support and investment of Gotham Green Partners, our ability to dedicate more physical space to growing and cultivating our flowers and team will make the possibilities endless.”
In a 2019 interview with NJ.com, Harrington discussed why he got into the cannabis concentrates and extracts game: “One reason was that building a brand in this space is far easier (than flower). Colorado, where we started, is more of a ‘deli’-style experience: The flower is in jars, and the jar’s contents go into this boring, white paper sack. But with extracts, you’re able to create some distinctive end-user packaging to set yourself apart.”
But for Scott, the real boon for speaking at Kahner Global, and the ongoing speaking engagements he is slated for in 2020, is the ability to connect with motivated investors seeking ongoing dealflow of vetted, outlier cannabis opportunities and outliers through the model he has created for Cannapreneur Partners which aims to recreate a “Shark Tank” for cannabis investing.
