IC3 Institutional Capital & Cannabis Conference (East)
22 Oct 2018
We’re in the midst of a significant shift in opinion on cannabis among voters and lawmakers – NY Governor Andrew Cuomo recently signaled he is now in favor of legalization and U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer of NY, has just announced a plan to decriminalize cannabis at the federal level.
Against this backdrop, IMN is excited to host our fourth Institutional Capital & Cannabis Conference (IC3), the leading investor forum for the cannabis industry, in New York City this October. IC3 is a meeting place for investors who wish to invest or learn more about this exciting and high-growth new asset class, cannabis companies and investment funds who are looking to raise money or showcase their products, and professional service providers who facilitate these groups doing business.
