Our Take on Cannabis:

We believe the regulated cannabis industry offers outstanding potential for long-term growth. Along with that growth will come opportunities for entrepreneurs to innovate and create exciting new businesses across a wide range of verticals. The combination of both recreational use as well as medical/wellness applications, along with the opening of markets around the world, should make the cannabis industry a multi-decade growth engine.

Pacific Growth Capital (PGC) works with innovative, entrepreneurial companies to help capitalize on that growth.

In M&A, we primarily represent sellers of cannabis-related businesses in finding buyers and negotiating transactions to a successful closing. We draw upon decades of M&A experience in early stage growth, tech, wireless, internet, service and industrial businesses. Our team has over $10 billion of cumulative transaction experience across a wide range of industries and deal sizes, from angel funding rounds to billion-dollar deals with public acquirors.

For companies seeking to raise capital, our Spark™ network connects entrepreneurs, accredited investors and service providers via a single, secure online platform.

We also assist companies on a project basis in an advisory capacity. Our primary expertise is as a partner to management in valuation, weighing the risks and benefits of pursuing internal growth vs. a sale transaction, business plan development, developing investor materials and identifying sources of funding.

Please contact CEO Ed Harris for additional information.
