Investing in Cannabis - Opportunities and Challenges


cannabis-investing-newCOVID has accelerated both growth and opportunities within the cannabis industry. 

While cannabis is an appealing investment opportunity for HNW, dedicated funds, family offices and individuals, it is a complex, highly-regulated industry with unique challenges and complex business processes.

We invite you to join us for an engaging discussion as we share key insights and explore industry and investment dynamics from our panel of successful investors. 

Join the Wharton PE & VC Alumni Association and Wharton Philadelphia Club for an engaging and informative  virtual program designed to provide valuable, actionable insights on investing in the growing cannabis industry, including both plant and non-plant touching segments. 

We're delighted to bring you a seasoned panel of cannabis investors who will provide a state of the industry update, current dynamics and opportunities for investment/value creation, investment structures and challenges, payments/banking, and operating characteristics.
