The world's largest cannabis companies are jockeying to dominate the lucrative US market. 7 top CEOs and executives break down the deals you can expect. 2021/02/25 14:23:10 Business Insider
Summary List Placement The US cannabis industry is set for a flurry of deals as Democrats on Capitol Hill make cannabis reform a core issue and new state markets open. Insider spoke with top executives at seven of the largest cannabis companies. They said that they'll be focused on expanding their footprints as new state markets open up. They also said they'd use deals to scoop up valuable intellectual property as they jockey for control of the lucrative US market. And there is another battle looming: Canadian companies like Canopy Growth, Aurora, Tilray, and Aphria, are all preparing to enter the US market as soon as they can, encroaching on US firms like Green Thumb Industries and Curaleaf. "These businesses, ours included, are going to become very big and very well-capitalized." Ben Kovler, the CEO of US cannabis company Green Thumb Industries (GTI) told Insider. In the US, cannabis is legal in 15 states for recreational purposes and in 36 states for medical use. Cowen analyst Vivien Azer has projected that the legal US cannabis industry could balloon to a $100 billion market by 2030, and companies are working hard to ensure that they'll win a slice of that.

See the pitch deck that a Facebook engineer and a Wall Street analyst used to raise $2.5 million to build sorely needed software tools for the cannabis industry 2021/02/15 13:00:00 Business Insider
Summary List Placement When Stacey Hronowski first entered the cannabis space as a consultant for a Bay-area cannabis company, she says she was taken aback at the amount of manual work that businesses were doing just to keep track of their operations. "Even incredibly efficient founders were spending a lot of time on Google Sheets, on pen and paper, trying to keep track of their inventory," Hronowski told Insider. That's when she started to map out the idea for a compliance tool for the cannabis industry. Hronowski founded a company called Entrc, now called Canix, to address what she saw as a gap between the strict compliance regulations that cannabis companies needed to adhere to and the tools available to help. Canix closed a $2.5 million round on Monday to further grow operations. The company wants to become the top business-management software for cannabis companies, the founders said. The seed round was led by Phyto Partners, Floret Ventures, Andrew Freedman (Colorado's former cannabis czar), and others.

The world's largest cannabis company is angling to jump into the US marijuana market after Biden's win 2020/11/18 19:22:00 Business Insider
Summary List Placement Canopy Growth, the world's largest cannabis company by market value, is laying the groundwork to enter the lucrative US cannabis market, after Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump in the presidential election earlier this month. On top of that, five states, including New Jersey and Arizona, voted to legalize marijuana during the election, a strong sign of what some in the industry say is a "green wave" of support for cannabis legalization among US voters. The US is set to become a $100 billion cannabis market by 2030 , according to estimates from the investment bank Cowen, up from about $61 billion this year. Canadian cannabis companies like Canopy are finding creative ways to get their brands in front of US consumers so they can hit the ground running as soon as that's allowed. "Legal marijuana is becoming the American norm," Canopy CEO David Klein said on a call with investors earlier this month. Canopy reported its quarterly earnings earlier this month, posting net revenue of 135 million Canadian dollars and a C$96.6 million net loss.

Changing BCPs to include work from home 2020/06/01 13:48:49 Hedgeweek
Changing BCPs to include work from home Submitted 01/06/2020 - 2:48pm SEI Contact Form Contact Company The idea that everyone would be working from home for an extended period of time was never truly contemplated in business continuity plans. But this is now expected to change in reaction to the current crisis. The experience over the past two months has taught the investment management business that, with the right tools, working from home can be an essential, and perhaps more practical and cost effective, element of BCPs going forward. Historically, a key element of a BCP involved an alternate location, due to be used in case a firm’s primary office is inaccessible. The abrupt and extensive shift to working from home as a result of the Covid-19 crisis could see a reassessment of those arrangements. Jack Seibald, Managing Director and Global Co-Head of Prime Brokerage & Outsourced Trading comments: “BCPs need to be updated to reflect this work from home capability. The notion that firms have to rent redundant locations, keep them fully functioning, yet empty until an event warrants it, now almost seems ridiculous.

I'm really excited to be back in your inboxes and I hope you're all excited for your weekly rundown of the never boring, always entertaining, and sometimes fascinating cannabis industry. For those of you who aren't as online as me and probably missed all of my social media posts, I spent the last two months covering New York state's response to the coronavirus pandemic as it quickly sucked up all the oxygen in the media — and our daily lives. Thankfully, things are slowly stabilizing in New York City. Though we're not out of the woods yet, cases are down, hospitals are getting back to normal, and the daily death counts are dropping. Let's hope policymakers and healthcare workers do what they can to ensure those trends continue.
