Greenview Investment Partners provides loans to cannabis wholesale cultivators, cannabis technology companies, and cannabis pharmaceutical companies. We currently serve businesses in all 30 states where recreational and/or medical marijuana is legal in the U.S. Nobody knows the cannabis investment vertical better than we do.
Since 2006, we have raised over $152 million in debt funding for cannabis companies throughout the United States and other markets such as Canada. Our cannabis investment choices are highly strategic in nature; we only invest in regional markets with the right demographics to support cannabis-related businesses. To ensure the success of our cannabis investments, we carefully vet and evaluate each and every business we work with. Over the years, Greenview Investment Partners has developed the resources, knowledge, and people needed to help grow and turn around hundreds of cannabis businesses into extremely profitable ventures. Our cannabis investment clients include one of the first cannabis firms to list publicly on the New York Stock Exchange—a fact we are extremely proud of.
Unlike other private equity and cannabis investment firms, we take a proactive approach for every business we finance. For start-up businesses, we provide the capital, equipment, manpower requirements and operating structures needed to help a business succeed in their local market. For the more established business partner we provide invaluable ongoing support such as in-depth market analysis, on-going monitoring and support to insure continued scalability and growth.
