Roth’s Investing in Women Cannabis Pioneers Investor Conference to Feature Female-Led Companies within the North American Cannabis Sector

  • Roth Capital Partners will host the “Women Cannabis Pioneers – The Brand Builders” event on September 28, 2021
  • The conference is set to feature approximately 25 privately held and female-led companies operating within the North American cannabis market
  • Institutional investors will have an opportunity to discover new investment opportunities through their interaction with a host of emerging and lesser-known privately held companies 

Hosted by Roth Capital Partners (“Roth”), a widely respected independent securities research and trading firm specializing in emerging growth companies, the Investing in Women Cannabis Pioneers – The Brand Builders event has been uniquely designed to highlight the cannabis industry with a distinct perspective. 

Renowned for hosting some of the nation’s largest conferences across a variety of different equity sectors, Roth Capital Partners has partnered with Wendy A. Berger, founder of Woman Backing Women, LLC, to provide investors with the opportunity to listen to, learn from, and interact with some of the leading, female-led private companies in a truly unique event.

A study carried out by Forbes magazine revealed that American women held nearly 27 percent of the leadership roles within the legal cannabis industry, a significant increase relative to their positions within traditional industries (https://nnw.fm/aehpg).  The upcoming conference will enable the institutional investors in attendance to meet with the executive management teams of approximately twenty-five of the most innovative and ground-breaking female-led private companies operating within the cannabis sector today. 

Featuring a broad array of companies, ranging from established corporations with a strong reputation across private markets to recent start-ups developing their initial product lines, the event will play host to companies currently operating within a multitude of cannabis sub-sectors, including edibles, beverages, dispensaries & distribution, topicals & tinctures, and vaping. A full list of participating companies can be found here: https://nnw.fm/6rqQX
