E97-How the scarcity of capital negatively impacts minority cannabis entrepreneurs

October 3, 2022

On this episode of the High Rise we are joined by Gerrel Olivier a senior analyst at Pura Vida Investments. Gerrel leads Pura Vida’s cannabis investment strategy where he has been able to help minority cannabis entrepreneurs partake in this unique value creation opportunity that the industry currently offers. 

Mr. Olivier illustrates just how important it is that we get the timing right to help level the playing field for black and brown entrepreneurs via proposed legislation such as the CLIMB Act. Solidifying this type of legislation will help provide access to lending and investment opportunities as well as allow access to the Wall Street system…all huge steps towards making cannabis a truly equitable industry.
