Don’t miss tomorrow night’s Southern California Cannabis Investment Forum, a discussion on investing in Southern California’s newly regulated cannabis industry. Hosted by Harris Bricken’s from our Los Angeles office, the Southern California Cannabis Investment Forum will connect top investors and leading companies in Southern California’s cannabis and ancillary industries.
The Forum will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday with a keynote from Hilary Bricken that addresses the many recent changes to California’s medical and adult use cannabis laws under MAUCRSA. From 6:45 to 8 p.m., I will moderate a panel comprised of Alex Fang, Founder of Sublime CO2; Paul Henderson, CEO of Grupo Flor; Stephen Kaye, COO of Big Rock; Kenneth Berke, President of PayQwick; and Carlton Willey, our own San Francisco-based securities and equity financing attorney.
Panelists will cover:
- Cannabis industry investing and fundraising and the outlook for the future
- Deal structures (i.e., investment rounds, debt versus equity deals, hybrid structures forced by volatile regulations, and reverse mergers)
- Business and financing concerns tied to investing in cannabis
- Investor red flags in Southern California’s cannabis industry
Audience questions will be taken throughout the presentation. A cocktail networking session will follow the panel and last until 9:30 pm. Food and drink will be provided.
The Southern California Cannabis Investment Forum will be held at Wanderlust Hollywood. Doors open at 5:30 pm. We’ll have a few tickets at the door, but we expect this event to sell out just as we did a similar event in San Francisco so it’s best to register in advance!
