What is Viridian Capital Advisors’ experience in the cannabis industry?

That’s for others to say, but what I can say is that we were one of the early financial firms with licensed bankers and analysts to enter the cannabis market. What makes Viridian unique is our combination of deep investment banking experience over many years building and financing emerging growth companies, our experience and relationships in the cannabis industry, the deal and investor databases we have built, and the profile of our team and advisory board.

We have been invited to speak and/or keynote at more than three dozen industry conferences and events over the past 18 months. Additionally, we have and continue to receive media coverage from mainstream and industry outlets, including Reuters, Fortune, Forbes, VICE, MSNBC, CNN, and Marijuana Business Daily, to name a few. Barron’s even cited the Viridian Cannabis Stock Index as the benchmark for the cannabis industry.

We have also held several Viridian Cannabis Investment Conferences, in fact the first such conference held in New York and Florida (note: securities are never offered at these conferences).
