This week, the Benzinga Cannabis Hour presents a jam-packed show with a timely slate of finance pros.
Tune in at 4 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 21, for:
- Hypur CRO Tyler Beuerlein
- Merida Capital partner Daisy Mellet
- Measure Eight CEO Justin Ort
Hypur, a fintech firm specializing in contactless payments for in-store cannabis orders, had quite an active year as pot purchases adjusted to an online and delivery model.
Recently, the company began verifying accounts in-house via open banking.
Merida recently partnered with analytics firm New Frontier Data on a new report: "Cannabis in America for 2021 & Beyond: A New Normal in Consumption and Demand."
The study provides an analysis of cannabis consumer behaviors driven by the COVID-19 pandemic and reflects the resized market projections following the passage of six cannabis ballot initiatives in five states: New Jersey, Montana, South Dakota, Mississippi and Arizona.
Last year, Measure 8 aimed to raise $100 million for a hedge fund. It also attempted to raise $200 million for a new venture fund.
