The rising stars of marijuana’s investment scene that everyone from Wall Street to Silicon Valley should know

Business Insider, Jeremy Berke and Melia Robinson
March 17, 2018 –
 Excerpt (Full article here)

As the legal-cannabis industry continues to grow at a breakneck pace, investors from Wall Street to Silicon Valley are seeing green.

Venture-capital investors from around the world spent $355 million on 100 marijuana-industry deals in 2017, and 2018 is on pace to break last year’s record. By the end of February, there were 19 venture-backed deals in the industry worth $176 million alone, and that doesn’t factor in the money investors have poured into hedge funds set up to take advantage of the budding industry.

For Business Insider’s first-ever list of rising stars in the marijuana-investment space, we asked readers to submit nominations and surveyed our past coverage of the industry. The list celebrates top investors from Wall Street to Silicon Valley and a number of places in between.

Federal prohibition has prevented most American institutional investors and top venture-capital firms from investing in the space. The situation has given rise to a number of marijuana-specific venture firms in the US — funded by high-net-worth individuals and family offices — and provided an opening for Canadian firms. Both these groups are well represented on our list.

We considered any active investors who have made investments in the marijuana industry, whether their contributions come from angel investing, venture capital, or hedge funds.

These are the rising stars of the marijuana-investment scene.

Investing in Cannabis: The Story of Canna Angels LLC

By Franco Faraudo, Direct Cannabis Network, Jan 2, 2017

Sherri Haskell, founder and CEO of the investment group Canna Angels LLC, is a petite woman, but her energy makes her seem much larger. I am 6’2” and I find myself standing up straighter when I am around her to match the size of her personality. This persona has, no doubt, not only helped her achieve her success in business, but also in her life’s passion: training horses.

I see many parallels between the two pursuits. She, above all else, has an eye for potential. Be it a wild horse, early stage company or a stock option, she has enjoyed success in identifying winners and giving them what they need to succeed. Now, as she sets her sights on establishing an angel investment consortium focused on early stage cannabis companies she will attempt to use her skills not only to benefit her group’s investors and portfolio companies, but to advance the nascent cannabis industry as well.

CannaAngels investment group for marijuana startups launched

NORTH BAY BUSINESS JOURNAL  December 14, 2016, Santa Rosa CA

A Sausalito-based group announced the launch of an investment group to pair investors with cannabis-centered startups.

CannaAngels LLC founder and CEO Sherri Haskell said in the announcement that the cannabis industry is forecast to grow to $50 billion in the next decade. California voters last month approved adult use of cannabis. Regulations are being written at the state and local level to launch retail sales in 2018.

“Thanks to voters, more than half the states in the country now have some form of cannabis legalization in place. The tipping point is upon us,” stated Haskell. “We see this as a most opportune time for investors curious about this industry to dive in. A looming challenge is that investors may not know the players or whom to trust in the industry, and at the same time cannabis entrepreneurs need reliable funding which has been difficult to access due to prohibition. Our focus at Canna Angels is to bridge this gap.”

The announcement states the group has identified multiple areas of interest such as agriculture technologies, genetics, bio-science and medical applications, real estate and lab/data analytics. Its announcement stated the group will provide startup founders with services ranging from deal structure and pitch development to marketing and mentorship.

The group was formed this year, it stated.
