August 21, 2023
SXSW PanelPicker is open for voting and we need your help to make it to SXSW 2024! Laura A. Bianchi, along with other esteemed professionals, have proposed an engaging panel to discuss cannabis investing.
In the beginning, private investors flood new legal cannabis markets with capital, sparking green rushes. But it doesn’t take long for the spigots to start squeezing shut. New investors ask tougher questions. They perform comprehensive due diligence. And too often, they discover cannabis companies saddled with bad debt and futures weighed down, if not doomed, by poor financial and strategic decisions made in the early days. In this panel discussion, participants explore the many red flags that investors like VCs should pay attention to when considering cannabis investments.
