Michigan Cannabis Investors And Entrepreneurs To Network At Exclusive Roundtable November 9 in Detroit

October 19, 2018 - By: Baystreet Staff


Benzinga, a leading news source for investors in cannabis, will host an exclusive Michigan Cannabis Business Roundtable to provide a forum for investors and Michigan cannabis operators to network and find the capital the cannabis industry needs to accelerate growth. The Roundtable will take place November 9th in Benzinga’s downtown Detroit office.

“Benzinga is a proven connector of investors and top cannabis operators,” said Jason Raznick, Benzinga CEO. “Since Michigan’s cannabis industry poses such huge opportunities for investors—it has the largest pre-registered patient registry in the country—we want to be proactive in creating connections that will make this industry a success and create jobs here.”

Benzinga hosted the Cannabis Capital Conference in Toronto in August, which hosted 600 investors and entrepreneurs as they gathered to build connections that will power the North American cannabis space. The company seeks to provide those connections to investors and entrepreneurs in its home state of Michigan with the Cannabis Business Roundtable.

Michael Elias, CEO of Michigan Pure Med, a leading medical cannabis company, will offer remarks to attendees, among other leaders.

Those interested in registering to attend the Roundtable may do so here. Eligible investors may qualify for free registration and may apply to attend by emailing bzcannabis@benzinga.com.

Michigan voters head to the polls to decide whether Michigan will be the next legal recreational cannabis market November 6. The latest polls show that more than half of Michiganders support legalization.
