Who We Are


Our Mission: To forge a principled and profitable industry from the ashes of cannabis prohibition


 

At The Arcview Group, we believe that business is the most powerful platform for political change and that the development of a responsible, profitable, and politically-engaged legal cannabis industry will be the single biggest factor in hastening the day when not a single adult in the world is punished for this plant.

With deep industry experience, The Arcview Group has ushered in the next generation of cannabis-related businesses with The Arcview Investor Network, Arcview Market Research, Canopy, Cannasure Insurance Services, and other ground-breaking ventures.

Cannabis is the next great industry. We look forward to building it with you.

 

About Our Investor Network

The Arcview Investor Network currently consists of 600+ accredited investors. More than 160 companies have raised at least $150 million as a result of their participation in Arcview.

Arcview hosts webinars each week where 3-5 companies pitch as well as a big in-person pitch event at least every quarter. Learn more about our upcoming events, or become a member to receive an invitation.

What is it like to be a member?

There is a palpable camaraderie among the members and everyone values from the knowledge, experience and skills that each other brings to the table. Yet, everyone is free to invest as they see fit.

Membership is open only to high net-worth accredited investors. If you are considering investing in this sector, now is a vital time to build the relationships that will give you the knowledge and confidence to make the right moves. You will not find a more concentrated group of industry leaders, innovative entrepreneurs, and savvy investors in such an intimate setting anywhere else.

So far, our investor members include heirs to family fortunes, venture capital funds, owners of the largest dispensaries, cultivations, and brands in the sector, experts in start-up investing, real estate investors, successful entrepreneurs who have sold their tech companies, owners of the most successful companies in the industry, and other high net-worth individuals.

Types of companies that have raised capital from the group include lighting tech, cannabis media and training, point-of-sale/inventory management, cultivation data and compliance company, property investment, consumption devices, plant nutrients, hemp cultivation, CBD extraction, packaging, physical and remote security, payment processing, social networks, licensed cannabis cultivators, retailers, and infused product manufacturers and more.

The companies go through a vetting process before being chosen to present. If there is enough interest in a given company from investor members then they often collaborate on due diligence. Or investors are free to make deals independently with any company they’d like.

Arcview does not take finder’s fees. Rather we operate via membership fees from investors and from sponsorships.

Arcview is also a partner in Canopy, a seed-stage business accelerator. Arcview members get priority access to the deals coming out of this program and many Arcview members are investors in Canopy. ​

When we look back 20 years from now I would not be surprised if many of the names we commonly associate with cannabis had at one point come through Arcview.
