Global cannabis sales are projected to grow by 38% to US$16.9 billion from 2018 to 2019. This rapid growth is creating demand from global investors for exposure to this nascent, but fast maturing industry. Nowhere is this more evident than in Latin America, where there are also thriving cannabis industries in countries such as Colombia and Uruguay. Citing this demand, The Arcview Group and Muisca Capital Group, will convene leading cannabis companies and investors from Latin America and around the world for the inaugural “Cannabiz Latino Hub – Impact Investment Summit”. The event will take place in Bogotá, Colombia on May 2nd at the 5-star Hotel Tequendama.

This private invite-only summit has been designed specifically for Latin American HNWIs, family offices, institutional investors, and fund managers to learn the intricacies of this industry and engage with investment opportunities in the global medicinal and recreational legal cannabis industry.

In addition to connecting Latin American investors with investment opportunities, this summit will also provide a unique platform for leading Latin American cannabis entrepreneurs to pitch and raise capital from international investors who are seeking to deploy capital into Latin America’s most promising cannabis start-ups and established companies.

Leading cannabis executives, thought leaders, and investment experts from around the world will be in attendance. Keynote, panel discussions, and investment pitches will cover Cannabis and Latin America, The Cannabis Value Chain, Market Insights, Direct Investment Opportunities, Export Strategies, Fund Investment Opportunities, Understanding and Analyzing the Public Markets, Capital Market Financing Strategies, Risks and Regulations, World Cannabis Policy and more.

Troy Dayton, CEO of The Arcview Group adds: “The global cannabis market is exploding, and Latin America is very much a part of the story. From the thriving export industry in Colombia to the legalization pioneer in Uruguay, Latin American investors and operators will play important roles in the global cannabis industry for years to come. In Colombia, for example, some expect the industry to eventually be bigger than the coffee, flower and banana industries together. The positive socio-economic impact that the legal cannabis industry is bringing to Latin America is undeniable and we are excited to help advance it by connecting global capital with opportunities in Latin America.”

Carol Ortega, Founding and Managing Director at Muisca Capital Group adds “With a population of more than 600 million inhabitants, the Latin American legal cannabis market is expected to be worth USD$13 billion by 2028. This is an emerging industry that was a source of conflict and war but has now become a unique opportunity to be a generator of wealth, diversity and inclusion in our communities. What’s missing, however, is a vibrant venture capital community to help propel Latin American cannabis companies to the next level and compete internationally. That is why we are so proud to pioneer the Latin American cannabis venture capital scene and provide these emerging companies with opportunities for growth capital. And there is no better place than to start then in Colombia, a country with a legal cannabis market that has attracted more than USD$220MM in foreign investment up to date, and where legalization of cannabis means peace and inclusion”
