Vancouver, April 19, 2018 – FrontFundr and Green Mountain Health Alliance (“Green Mountain” or the “Company”) are pleased to announce the launch of Canada’s first cannabis crowdfunding campaign. By raising capital through the investment crowdfunding platform FrontFundr, Green Mountain Health Alliance is ensuring all Canadians can join the cannabis economy.
Investor interest in the cannabis industry has risen significantly over the past year, as the deadline for expected legalisation approaches. It is projected that industry production will reach only $500 million of an anticipated $7 billion in demand — and investors want in. Recent data from ATB Financial shows that 43% of Albertans saw cannabis as a good opportunity for investing.
Cannabis investors have been restricted to a small pool of public companies where most of the major stock growth has already been realized. Access to early-stage cannabis companies like Green Mountain is typically limited to employees, venture capitalists, or accredited investors – groups that 95% of Canadians don’t fit into. That changes today as Green Mountain launches an investment crowdfunding campaign on FrontFundr.
“Partnerships are important to us. We are using crowdfunding to raise capital so that we can partner with all Canadians who want to invest in the cannabis economy,” said Wade Attwood, President and co-founder of Green Mountain.
It’s a sentiment echoed by Peter-Paul van Hoeken, CEO and Co-Founder of FrontFundr: “We’re delighted to be the first platform to support an online investment opportunity in a cannabis related company in Canada. Anyone can invest in Green Mountain right from the start. By raising capital through FrontFundr, Green Mountain is enabling small and large investors alike to benefit from the tremendous growth potential within a vibrant and quickly evolving industry. It’s a true democratization of access to the opportunities in the cannabis industry”
Starting Thursday April 19, 2018 Canadians can invest in Green Mountain on the FrontFundr platform. The minimum investment is $500. Funds will be used to complete the company’s first facility, which is scheduled to be ready for its first test harvest before the end of 2018, subject to Health Canada approval. Construction is already underway at the first of three facilities which will total 1,000,000 square feet of growing space.
