‘High’ Tech – The Story of Tweed and Canopy Growth Corporation
From humble beginnings in the old Hershey factory in Smiths Falls, Ontario, to joining the TSX Composite Index, the story of therapeutic marijuana company Tweed has been one of constant advancement. It is a story that has received coverage from the Economist magazine through to the New York Times. And it has now reached a new pinnacle – TechTuesday!
Local entrepreneur Bruce Linton is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of what has morphed into Canopy Growth Corporation (CGC), and he will be the guest speaker for our June event. Bruce has leveraged many years of experience as a founder, CEO and Board member across a variety of enterprises to create the undeniably positive start for CGC. To date, the company has raised more than $200 Million and launched on the public markets, as noted. The company has also undertaken three M&A transactions valued at more than $500 million since its founding.
Bruce will share more about this impressive journey so far, and hint at what might lie ahead. He also has the benefit of inside insight, and will speak to some of the myths, facts and unanswered questions that remain for the emerging industry. We believe you will find this story interesting and informative, and hope to see you there …
