Cannabis Investors Preparing For Industry Data From WeedStock
Investors across the country are preparing to consider and adjust their investments in the cannabis space, following announcements they hear at the WeedStock conference, taking place from June 29 to July 1 in Denver.
One of the biggest aspects many investors are anticipating is the discussion of new offerings. As the marijuana industry rapidly develops, almost every firm is launching new products and services. In many cases, those details will be given for the first time at WeedStock, along with first opportunities for executives to answer investor questions.
For example, Vapor Group (OTC: VPOR) will be introducing its new line of high-end vaporizers. According to company COO Yaniv Nahon, “this conference is important to us because it gives us the opportunity to showcase our new technologies.”
Policy change will be another hot topic at the conference. Businesses will discuss not only how changes in legislation around the world will affect their business, but also what impact Colorado’s legalization has on the rest of country.
Entrepreneurs in the cannabis space will discuss the steps it takes to launch a new business. Topics will range from launching the company to securing financing to working with the SEC. The value of this coverage is two-fold: entrepreneurs will better understand operations in the space, and investors will have an idea of what it takes for competitors of the publicly-traded companies they own to launch.
As scheduled keynote speaker and cannabis investor Alan Brochstein commented, “We are still in the early stages of an incredible transformation of this industry. This first-of-its-kind conference will be a chance for those interested in learning about potential opportunities to hear from industry experts, as well as the leaders of a second wave of publicly-traded companies and private companies that are seeking to capitalize on the changes ahead." Over 1,600 investors depend on Brochstein’s analysis of the cannabis industry ,as members of the 420 Investor.
