What investors are looking for and thinking about: A discussion with David Chao

In May, DCM, a venture capital firm with over $4 billion under management, held Silicon Valley’s first major Cannabis Technology Summit.

To follow up on the industry buzz, we are hosting a live discussion with David Chao, Founder of DCM, to discuss many of the hot topics in the cannabis industry and how the changing regulations are affecting company growth and fundraising, including questions like:

  • What is most important for founders to consider when building a cannabis business
  • How are recent regulation changes shifting the way you are making investments
  • How will Canada’s recent legalization of cannabis shift the US market
  • What are some of the more innovative things you’ve seen on the supply chain side of cannabis

Due to some last minute scheduling issues, we are postponing this webinar for the time being. We will follow up with those that have registered when we have a new date set.
