It has just been announced that Bruce Linton, Founder, Chairman and Co-CEO of Canopy Growth Corp. (NYSE:CGC) (TSX:WEED) (FRA:11L1) will be the keynote speaker at Kahner Global’s upcoming first annual Cannabis Private Investment Summit in San Francisco on November 5th, 2019.
Kahner Global specializes in curating high-level conferences and events. Inspired by integrity and impact, Kahner Global has a proven ability to develop mutually beneficial relationships in highly competitive markets.
Canopy Growth was the first cannabis producing company in North America to be listed on a major stock exchange in July 2016 and has continued its growth ever since.
Bruce’s experience as a founder, CEO, and Board member across a wide variety of enterprises has influenced the positive start of Canopy Growth, which to date has enjoyed market support for capital raises of over $6 billion including a $5 billion CAD investment by Fortune 500 beverage company, Constellation Brands Inc. (NYSE:STZ).
Bruce’s focus has been driving Canopy’s overall strategy including its Canadian and international expansion efforts as well as laying the groundwork for the company’s future move into cannabis-based consumer products including cannabis-based medicines, with the founding of subsidiary Canopy Health Innovations, and into cannabis-based beverages, through a strategic partnership with Constellation Brands.
After beginning his career at Newbridge Networks Corporation, he has since held positions that include General Manager and Re-Founder of Computerland.ca, President and Co-Founder of webHancer Corp, and part of the establishing team at CrossKeys Systems Corporation. He was also part of the leadership team for the NASDAQ/TSX initial public offering at CrossKeys. He is the past Chairman of the Ottawa Community Loan Foundation, past Board Member and Treasurer of Canada World Youth, past Board of Governor for Carleton University, past President of the Nepean Skating Club, and past President of the Carleton University Students Association.
Just this morning, Canopy Growth Corp. pulled off another big win with the receipt of additional Health Canada licensure allowing the company to cultivate cannabis outdoors at a site in Northern Saskatchewan.
“Our team has outdoor, at-scale cannabis expertise gained from over a decade of hemp farming experience, including Canopy’s 4,000-acre hemp operation executed last year, the extract of which is bolstering our CBD supply for the medical and recreational markets,” said Mark Zekulin, President and co-CEO, Canopy Growth. “At this stage in the summer planting season we view this as a pilot and ramp up project for outdoor cannabis cultivation, though the team will do everything it can to deliver low cost yields this year.”
