Cannabis Capital: How to Get Your Business Funded in the Cannabis Economy

Entrepreneur Press
This book will become available on January 21, 2020. You will not be charged until it is released.

The cannabis industry is seeing an explosion of entrepreneurship and a great amount of capital is flowing into the sector globally. It is essential for cannabis business owners to understand how to be one of the few businesses that secure funding.

The answer to bridging this disconnect lies in not only understanding how to build a successful business but, directly listening from investors on what is required when backing a company. And most importantly, why they invest in certain companies, entrepreneurs and not others.

Cannabis Capital is the definitive resource outlining the fundamentals for building a company that will attract investment, why investors will invest and how to successfully raise capital. Ross O’Brien brings more than a decade of investing in private companies, managing a $50 million cannabis investment fund, hosting cannabis industry events, as well as investor forums. O'Brien shares the best practices and shares proven frameworks for success.

Motivating Mum (www.motivatingmum.co.uk) is a website that offers support and advice to mums who are running businesses and those who are thinking of starting up.

In March 2011, Motivating Mum organised a charity mentoring festival called Mummy Mentoring Month, in association with International Women's Day. Successful business women were encouraged to donate their time and their professional services, and these services were sold to mums who were starting up, with all proceeds going to charity.

As part of this festival, we asked business women in the UK and Australia to send in blogs, which were published one a day during the month of March. I kept the scope very wide - blog about anything that would give support and advice to mums. The results were amazing - blogs written by professional coaches and very successful businesswomen, and blogs written by people who are just starting out. Some are sharing their professional advice in various different disciplines - some are just sharing their personal journeys, successes and failures.

Taken as a whole I think these blogs provide a great resource of really good advice for mums in business, and that is why I decided to put them together into an eBook that people can dip into for inspiration on an ongoing basis.

The charity that we supported for Mummy Mentoring Month in the UK is Nema (www.nemafoundation.org) which helps women in rural Mozambique with aid, healthcare and education, so that they can support their communities and families. So in order to continue the spirit of Mummy Mentoring Month and International Women's Day, I am donating 20% of my royalties from the sale of this book to Nema.

I hope that you will be inspired and educated by the blogs in this book. If you are please visit www.motivatingmum.co.uk (or www.motivatingmum.com in Australia) where the support, advice and inspiration is ongoing.
Fully revised and expanded for the first time in a decade, this is Guy Kawasaki's classic, bestselling guide to launching and making your new product, service, or idea a success.

Whether you're an aspiring entrepreneur, small-business owner, intrapreneur, or not-for-profit leader, there's no shortage of advice on topics such as innovating, recruiting, fund raising, and branding. In fact, there are so many books, articles, websites, blogs, webinars, and conferences that many startups get paralyzed, or they focus on the wrong priorities and go broke before they succeed. 
The Art of the Start 2.0 solves that problem by distilling Guy Kawasaki's decades of experience as one of the most hardworking and irreverent strategists in the business world. Guy has totally overhauled this iconic, essential guide for anyone starting anything.  It’s 64 percent longer than version 1.0 and features his latest insights and practical advice about social media, crowdfunding, cloud computing, and many other topics.
 
Guy understands the seismic changes in business over the last decade: Once-invulnerable market leaders are struggling. Many of the basics of getting established have become easier, cheaper, and more democratic. Business plans are no longer necessary. Social media has replaced PR and advertising as the key method of promotion. Crowdfunding is now a viable alternative to investors. The cloud makes basic infrastructure affordable for almost any new venture.
 
The Art of the Start 2.0 will show you how to effectively deploy all these new tools.  And it will help you master the fundamental challenges that have not changed: building a strong team, creating an awesome product or service, and facing down your competition.
 
As Guy likes to say, “Entrepreneur is a state of mind, not a job title.” His book will help you make your crazy ideas stick, through an adventure that's more art than science – the art of the start.
