NEW YORK, June 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MjMicro Conference (www.mjmicro.com), the next-level investor forum for publicly traded cannabis companies, will lead off with keynote presentations featuring Canopy Growth Corp., Sadis Goldberg, Acreage Holdings Inc. and Virdian Capital Advisors. The conference will take place June 25, 2019, at the Westin Grand Central in New York City.
“MjMicro will kick off with very intentional and specific sessions prior to the core corporate presentations from 21 exciting publicly traded opportunities,” stated George Jage, president and COO of MjLink.com and producer of MjMicro. “When designing a well-run conference, it is key to include content that creates excitement, provides clarity and validates the growth potential of the cannabis industry.”
The MjMicro Conference is an invitational networking forum, and this one-day conference provides an exceptional opportunity for private capital investors to connect with cannabis-related public entities and for attendees to hear from industry experts.
The program will begin with a fireside chat featuring Andy Lytwynec, Canopy Growth’s vice president of strategy for the U.S. He joined Canopy following his time at Constellation brands, where he led that company’s strategic foray into the cannabis industry that ultimately culminated in Constellation’s multibillion-dollar investments in Canopy Growth. Canopy Growth Corp. is the largest publicly traded cannabis company in the U.S., with a market cap in excess of $18 billion.
Providing clarity will be Ron Geffner of Sadis Goldberg, recently named the Best Global Law firm at the 2019 Hedgeweek Awards. Ron’s background as an SEC prosecutor and his extensive experience in structuring funds give him unique insights into the development of market values for this emerging industry. Ron will provide an overview of the legal status and forward trajectory of cannabis in the U.S. and globally.
A second fireside chat will be held with Tyson Macdonald, executive vice president of corporate development at Acreage Holdings. He will discuss the growth of the brand and significant capital raises the company has achieved in the past 18 months leading up to the recent announcement of a potential acquisition by Canopy Growth.
Scott Greiper, CEO of Viridian Capital Advisors and the first licensed investment bank in the cannabis industry, will round out the morning sessions to provide data-driven insights from Viridian’s proprietary Cannabis Deal Tracker and marketing intelligence reports.
Greiper notes, “As a leading source of data and market intelligence, we have seen a dramatic increase of capital flowing into the market. There was nearly a fourfold increase in investment deals in 2018 over 2017, reaching $13.8 billion.”
