We like to talk about the spectacular development of the last few years as a “green rush,” but what we’ve experienced up to this point is merely a sign of what’s to come.

The Salveo Capital Marijuana Investment Summit will provide attendees with the knowledge to confidently invest in the next great American industry.
With an astronomical 74% growth rate in 2014 legal marijuana is the fastest growing industry in the United States, and while its current $2.7 billion market value sounds impressive it’s only the beginning. As legalization spreads to new states, as markets begin to open, and as the federal governments eases its restrictions the limitless opportunities of this nascent industry will be revealed.
Opportunities to build dominant, national brands; to have a hand in constructing an industry from scratch; to get in before the ground floor is even constructed.
As with any investment there are risks and challenges. This Summit will outline not only the tremendous potential of cannabis, but also the potential legal and business pitfalls. The Salveo team will spotlight the difficulties of investing in cannabusinesses and will highlight the ways savvy investors are overcoming the hurdles of such a young market. Additionally, representatives from businesses from several sectors of the industry will be on hand to provide a glimpse at the best of the companies fundraising in the marijuana space.
The Salveo Capital Marijuana Investment Summit is an invitation-only event open only to accredited investors. Contact us to inquire about an invitation to learn about investment in the cannabis space.

- The State of the Marijuana Investment Market: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly - Think investing in marijuana is easy? Think again.

In this talk we address the many problems that accompany any attempted foray into the market.
- Risky Business? The Legal Risks of Investing in Legal Marijuana - Is there any risk of prosecution? Seizure of assets? What truly are the risks of investing in marijuana?
