Galen Diligence at the Cannabis World Congress

This summer and fall, I led break-out sessions at two Cannabis World Congress events, first in New York and then in Boston. It was a pleasure to speak with newcomers to the industry about why due diligence is important, and how they can take simple steps to begin the vetting process themselves. 

Leaders of successful cannabis businesses are significantly outnumbered by potential investors and partners who want into the industry. Unfortunately, there is very little information available to support cannabis business-leaders making difficult decisions about which investors and partnerships to accept. On top of that, accepting money from the wrong investor, or licensing your brand to the wrong partner, could sink your business. This session will educate business owners about industry-specific risk factors to consider when making this important decision, and provide tips on how to approach due diligence on potential investors and partners.
