On Thursday, September 28th, our San Francisco office will host an event on investing in California’s newly regulated cannabis industry. Sponsored by the  Templar, GBDS, and the NCIA, the California Cannabis Investment Forum will bring together top investors and leading companies in California’s cannabis industry and its related technologies.

Hilary Bricken of our Los Angeles office will begin the Forum at 6:15 p.m. with a short keynote addressing the recent (and many) changes to California’s medical and adult use cannabis laws. Then from 6:45 p.m. to 8 p.m., Carlton Willey of our San Francisco office will moderate a panel comprised of the following early and late stage investors and debt and equity financers with experience in California’s cannabis industry:

Allen Gold, Principal at Templar Capital Management

Alejandro Di Tolla, CEO of GBDS and a leading angel investor in cannabis businesses

Sherri Haskell, Founder and CEO of CannaAngels

Tom DiGiovanni, CFO of Canndescent

Emily Paxhia, Managing Director of Poseidon Asset Management

Panelists will cover cannabis industry investing, deal structures, cannabis business concerns in the context of investing, and investor red flags in the cannabis industry, as well as matters of increasing importance in the cannabis investment world as we head into 2018 and California’s expected $8 billion legalized cannabis marketplace. Audience questions will be taken during the entirety of the panel discussion and if you’d like to submit a question to the panel beforehand, please write us at firm@harrisbricken.com.

The California Cannabis Investment Forum will be held at Covo Event Space in Downtown San Francisco. Hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be served. Doors open at 5:45 p.m., and a cocktail networking session will commence from 8-9:30 p.m.
