Lane Powell supports the Cannabis Investor Network (CIN) in Seattle. The mission of CIN is to connect accredited investors with state-legal cannabis businesses that need additional capital. Lane Powell hosted the inaugural event in our Seattle office earlier this year with about 40 guests, and hosted the second event last night with about twice that number. Pitches from several segments of the cannabis industry were very well received and everyone seemed to welcome the opportunity to connect with other business people in the industry. CIN is based in Seattle and open to Accredited Investors and cannabis businesses seeking capital.
How it works:
Those interested in pitching their company to the Cannabis Investment Network begin by submitting their application and materials online through this Deal Funding page. Companies must be beyond the idea phase though they need not have revenue. Candidates for presentation should submit a comprehensive pitch deck, which includes your business plan, financial projections and other relevant company background and information.
Following submission of your application and supporting documentation, CIN will review and evaluate your proposal to ensure it has everything needed to make an informed decision. During this review process, CIN representatives will be in contact with you to source additional details about your company, the management team, operations, marketing plans and financial projections. Once CIN has what it needs and thinks your company would be a good fit to present to its Investor Network, CIN will schedule an in-person meeting or phone screen with you where you walk through your pitch deck.
After the screening meeting, if CIN decides to proceed, CIN will schedule your company to present at an upcoming meeting.
At the investor event, you will be given approximately ten minutes to present and five minutes for Q&A. You should expect that you will be participating with several other companies at the meeting.
