Helping Private Companies Go Public In The Cannabis Sector With NEO Exchange
Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with THE cannabis movers and shakers from across the globe during Benzinga’s first Virtual Cannabis Capital Conference on June 1. Among the attendees is NEO Exchange.
NEO Exchange, a senior stock exchange in Canada launched in 2015 by a group of established buy-side and sell-side stakeholders, provides capital markets infrastructure connecting investors, advisors, and their dealers with capital raising companies across the public and private sectors.
Chief Revenue Officer of NEO, Erik Sloane, will be speaking at Benzinga’s upcoming Virtual Cannabis Capital Conference. He will be joined by the President of Viridian Capital Advisors, Scott Greiper, who will moderate their fireside chat.
The focus of this discussion will be on the challenges attached to capital raising through the private market and into public investors, general issues faced in the cannabis sector, and how key partners can help cannabis companies mitigate these challenges. Challenges that have now been enhanced due to COVID-19.
“Not a single individual, business, or industry has been left untouched, in some way, by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Sloane. “Many companies – both public and private – are finding it more challenging than ever to raise capital in these current conditions: it can be difficult to engage with contacts, manage investors, and get exposure for your brand with physical distancing restrictions in place.”
NEO has corporate issuers listed in the cannabis sector, and in the U.S. cannabis space. The exchange has been a part of raising over $1.5B in capital last year, including a number of significant U.S. Cannabis SPAC launches in 2019, with plans to continue to raise even more.
“Opportunities for growth still exist in this market, if you know where to find them.”
