Started in 1984, the Long Island Capital Alliance, a.k.a. LICA, has been “promoting business growth on Long Island” by providing area businesses with the opportunities and access required to thrive in today’s competitive entrepreneurial environment.
With the East Coast’s cannabis industry still in its early stages, so many cannabis-related companies are seeking capital infusions to accomplish their goals. The good news for these companies is that more and more investors are starting to have the risk appetite to stomach an early-stage cannabis-related investment.
On December 7th, LICA is giving seven up-and-coming cannabis companies the chance to present their business plans and growth prospects to an “audience that will include venture capital firms, investment banks, private equity firms, and angel and high net worth investors.”
A small sampling of the highlighted investor participants includes Navy Capital‘s Sean Stiefel, Altitude Investment Partners‘ Jon Trauben, and Flatiron Venture Group‘s Tamara Totah. Almost as impressive as the investors attending are the seven companies that are set to present.
