The Blytheweigh Team sponsors Cannabis: Risk, Reward & Reality Conference, July 2019
On 2nd July, the Blytheweigh ("Bw") team, in partnership with the Natural Resources Forum, Gowlings and Crowe, hosted the Cannabis: Risk, Reward & Reality Conference, hosted by the Natural Resources Forum. The conference was an opportunity for investors, analysts and experts in the industry to network and acquire a better understanding of the finance, business and science of the growing cannabis market.
Leading names from the industry formed the panels to discuss three topics: ‘risk and reality’, ‘Companies’ Experience’ and ‘Reward’ (Investors views). Rom Lakritz, CFO of Kanabo Research, a company in the process of a reverse takeover with Bw client Spinnaker Opportunities, gave an interesting perspective on the company’s experience of listing on the London market.
The event was heavily oversubscribed, as demonstrated by a very full conference room, with over 150 people in attendance.
Following the panel discussions everyone gathered for drinks, providing an excellent chance for further discussion and networking.
Camilla Horsfall, Bw Director, said, “Overall, the conference was a brilliant experience for all who attended and highlighted the potential of the growing cannabis industry, in all of its sectors, as well as helping attendees better understand how to invest in the market and the rewards of doing so.”
