Ep. 22 – Going Public? Do Retail Investors Matter?
In this episode, Danny Brody gives us a behind the scenes look into how they’ve raised over half a billion dollars and built some of the most recognizable names in cannabis. Danny is a partner in RADD Capital, the financing firm that backed Organigram, Emblem, Plus Products, The Green Organic Dutchman and now Hempfusion.
Danny and his team have taken an unconventional path to finance these companies. He lays out for us how they’ve lead a “Retail Investor First” strategy. They’ve honed their approach and he was generous in sharing lessons from doing this as well as perspectives on investor engagement, broker relationships and why you should protect your cap table like it is your firstborn.
When it comes to financing early-stage deals, no MBA or CFA program will give you these kinds of insights. This is definitely an episode to listen to – from those in the finance business to entrepreneurs looking to raise money, Danny lays out some great lessons for us.
