Growing Pains: Financing Challenges as Cannabis Goes Mainstream

On-demand webinar

Continued improvement in laws around cannabis has created growing pains for this dynamic, fast-paced, budding industry.  Regulatory changes on the horizon are anticipated to make cannabis a legal industry at the federal level which will create an entirely new sector of the formal economy. 

Now is the time to develop a strategy for the rapid growth, consolidation, M&A activity and IPO opportunities on the horizon.

By watching this on-demand webinar, participants will learn strategies for approaching financial and public markets including:

  • Business strategy for industry changes
  • Controls, processes and system enhancements
  • Investor expectations and telling the story
  • Market leadership focus
  • Strategic insight from industry experts

Participants who attended the event were eligible to receive two CPE credits in the field of Business Management and Organization.
