Cannabis represents a new industry in Colorado and perhaps nationwide in the years to come. With new industries come new opportunities for business and for investors. Rockies Venture Club presents the first Cannabis Capital Summit in celebration of these opportunities while also discussing the potential risks that investors face.
While we all see medical and recreational marijuana retail centers, the industry extends far and wide with implications for real estate, banking, genetic engineering, soils, fertilizers, packaging and more.
Attend the Cannabis Capital Conference to learn about how to succeed as an investor or entrepreneur in the budding cannabis industry.
Thursday 5/29: Keynote, Speakers & Pitches
The program runs from 9:00 to 7:00 with keynote speaker, five expert panels and four cannabis entrepreneurs pitching for venture capital.
The conference will present 6 investment ready companies serving the cannabis industry to angel investors in the audience. Pitch companies receive training and coaching in venture/angel capital so they can present their companies to investors in the best light.
