Denver, CO (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
CEO Troy Dayton of The ArcView Group and Roberto Lopesino, vice president of business development for Advanced Cannabis Solutions, will keynote the Rockies Venture Club’s first Cannabis Capital Summit May 29 at Mile High Station in Denver.
Dayton, who will deliver the opening address, is a founding board member of the National Cannabis Industry Association and a board member of the Marijuana Policy Project. The ArcView Group is one of the leading investment networks in the cannabis industry.
Lopesino will be the luncheon speaker. He’s a leading expert on the growing and pricing of legalized marijuana. He operates a consulting business that monitors the medical marijuana market in Colorado and operates a non-brokered commodities market for the commercial production of medical-grade marijuana. He once owned one of the largest marijuana-growing facilities in the state and consults with companies planning new growing facilities.
“We’re fortunate to have Troy, Roberto and an amazing lineup of other experts to explore key issues facing the cannabis and related industries,” said Peter Adams, executive director of Rockies Venture Club. “Serious investors are beginning to pay attention to this controversial and exciting new industry. We believe this is a must-attend event for anyone interested in exploring the potential for investing in cannabis-related businesses.”
The Cannabis Capital Summit will include panels on investing in cannabis, banking and cannabis businesses, the future of legalization of marijuana, and support services for cannabis businesses.
Several investable marijuana-related companies will make pitches for capital investment, and a variety of cannabis-related vendors will participate in an expo featuring the latest products and services in the market. A forum for accredited investors potentially interested in investing in cannabis business deals will be held the next day.
