Cannabis Capital Summit
The first year of legal Cannabis in Colorado has been a whirlwind.  RVC held its first Cannabis Capital Summit last year and cleared the smoke on some of the risks and opportunities in this budding industry. This year we look at Cannabis 2.0 and the new landscape.Cannabis 2.0?

Grow operations are having new challenges with profitability – many have gone from cash cows to cash constrained.  What will happen to the wholesale price of cannabis as industrial grow operations continue to grow?

Ancillary businesses have continued to grow more sophisticated and are moving to take advantage of the opportunities for expansion in new states as cannabis becomes legal in more and more states.

Exits are elusive for cannabis companies with no public entities in the industry.  What are the opportunities for exits in the cannabis industry?  We will look at the public markets, roll-ups and industry experts will provide guidance for investors and companies alike.

Interested in sponsoring this event?

This conference will bring together industry leaders, venture capitalists, angel investors, banking and legal experts, and entrepreneurs to address the state of the Cannabis and Hemp industries, investment opportunities, potential risks, and what the future holds for the Cannabis business environment in Colorado!
