Market Spotlight for Angels: Cannabis

Wednesday, March 7, 12:00 to 1:00p Eastern

The U.S. legalized cannabis market is anticipated to reach $25 billion by 2021, up from $5.9 billion in 2016, with the dramatic growth coming from a combination of new states projected to legalize marijuana and sales exceeding expectations in existing markets.  With 2017 Gallop poll data reporting 64% approval ratings by Americans for marijuana’s legalization, the debate is rapidly shifting from “whether” to “when and how.”  ACA annual partner Foley Hoag has been watching this industry closely and will lead a discussion on the key dynamics to consider in the investment opportunities many angels will undoubtedly be seeing at an increasing velocity.  Topics will include regulatory environment considerations and the scope of primary and ancillary subsector investment opportunities.  Join us for what promises to be a very informative session on this rapidly growing industry. Speakers:

Investing It Forward – A Conversation with ACA Instructors on Fundamentals of Angel Investing
Wednesday, March 21, 12:00 to 1:00p Eastern

Angel investing can be very rewarding but, like any complex and dynamic process, there are a lot of moving parts.  Whether it is grappling with acceptable valuation ranges, navigating the economic and control provisions of term sheets or thinking through your portfolio strategy and the work after the investment, there is a lot to unpack.  Experienced angel investors Marcia Dawood and Bill Payne will be joining us to share what they wish they knew in their own early investing days – and now teach as part of ACA’s “Fundamentals of Angel Investing” program.  Join us to learn more about what works and what doesn’t to increase the odds of successful angel investing returns and bring more clarity to the process. (ACA presents a deeper dive into Fundamentals as a pre-program of the ACA Summit on April 18 in Boston. Click here for details). Speakers:
