This September AltFi is working with Canaccord Genuity and Cannafi on a one-off event exploring how the fast-growing European cannabis sector is being funded via debt and equity raised via alternative finance.
The Cannabis Finance Forum on 17 September will unpack the twin avenues of alternative debt and equity, and how investors in Europe are accessing this space.
Discussions will be split into streams exploring:
The Global Scope: contrasting Europe to the Americas
The Industry Dynamics: exploring the ecosystem, the brands in play and M&A activity
Accessing the Markets: the stocks, fund structures and indices available for investors
Regulatory & Legislative Concerns: associated with medicinal and recreational products in the UK and Europe
Financing the Industry: everything from working capital through to equipment financing and capital debt
Speakers already announced for the one-day event include:
Robert Jappie, Head of Cannabis Law at London solicitors Mackrell Turner Garrett
AltFi is coming back to Toronto following on from a highly successful event last year. We'll again be bringing a high profile international showcase of speakers from the leading fintech and alternative finance leaders.
