Angel investment group to hold marijuana summit

DENVER – Rockies Venture Club will hold the first Cannabis Capital Summit on May 29, bringing together marijuana-industry leaders, venture capitalists, angel investors, banking and legal experts, and entrepreneurs to address potential risks, opportunities and the future the new industry.

Investing in marijuana presents an entirely different set of risks than investors are used to, said Peter Adams, executive director for the Rockies Venture Club, an angel investment group founded in 1985.

“Serious investors are beginning to express intense interest in the industry,” Adams said in a statement. “But there’s a lot of confusion and questions from both investors and entrepreneurs. Our goal is to help change that.”

The conference will present four panels, a keynote speaker, investment pitches from marijuana-related companies and an expo featuring the latest products and services in the market. A follow-up forum for accredited investors to invest in cannabis business deals will be held the next day.

Cannabis Capital Summit will focus on four issues: investing, banking, the future of legalization in other states and opportunities in the industry outside retail and cultivation.

The Cannabis Capital Summit will be at Mile High Station, 2027 Old West Colfax Ave. The cost to attend is $229 for the public, $199 for basic members of the Rockies Venture Club and $159 for full members.
