Investment Process

Our investment process involves identifying and becoming deeply knowledgeable about legal cannabis industry sectors which are fragmented and consolidating and then investing in businesses in those sectors that can grow both organically and by acquiring and integrating similar businesses. With offices in Tampa, Boca Raton, and Chicago, we invest principally in the United States, but consider opportunities globally as well.
