The cannabis market is growing across the globe and, as more places are working on new legislation for the cannabis market, worldwide collaborations can be great for the industry. Canopy Rivers, a venture capital firm specializing in cannabis, is participating in this year’s GCI Europe cannabis summit, which will be held online this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The digital event, scheduled to take place on November 11-12, will have the president and CEO of Canopy Rivers, Narbe Alexandrian, as one of the leaders who will be speaking at this event.
This international event brings together the cannabis community from all sectors. It creates an opportunity to deliver a valuable experience through participation in talks and networking events to meet several leaders doing important things in today’s industry and take advantage of their knowledge. This event covers most of the essential parts of the industry with key themes such as medical cannabis and cannabis-derived treatments, investment and winning business strategies, research and applied science, brands, consumer goods and international markets, psychedelic therapeutic compounds, and, of course, all about current regulations that are in place in key markets and countries.
Europe presents a great potential for the US and Canadian industry to expand, as there are several countries with cannabis legislation in the old continent with a lot of potential. Canopy Rivers, as a company focused on investing in innovators across the cannabis value chain, is already involved in the European market through a few investments it has made on European-based companies, like its ownership in the Italy-based organic hemp production and processing platform CanapaR SrL.
The format of this event will offer the possibility to book video meetings with prospective collaborators or to learn from the most accomplished leaders through the GCI platform. The curated multi-topic program allows the attendee to choose the preferred sessions and deepen the knowledge only on those areas of interest.
