How would you best describe CannaJam™ 2018?
Mary Ruggiero: “CannaJam™ 2018 brings together several small-cap companies from the cannabis industry, with the aim of giving investors a better understanding of how those firms work and why they should consider investing in them. Hear several presentations from CEOs about their business plus audience Q&A. At 6:30 pm join the extended networking time which includes an open bar, hors d’oeuvres, live music and a chance for one-to-one meetings with the presenters.”
Who hosts the event? Any interesting presenters?

What is the event’s history?
Mary Ruggiero: “Proactive Investors has been running successful investor events, conferences and forums in London, Manchester, Toronto, Melbourne, and Sydney for nearly ten years. Six months ago, we opened our New York office and held our first event in the city. That event proved popular and was standing room only during the presentations. The attendees comprised of genuine institutional and retail investors with an interest in learning about investment opportunities. They met with CEOs from a wide range of companies. Since then we host about one event every month.”
How many attendees do you expect at this event?
Mary Ruggiero: “We have over 480 registered attendees and about half will be selected to attend the event. At any one point, we expect there to be 120 investors in the room, including many from the top 20 investment banks, as well as some of the largest fund managers and high net worth individuals.”
Who should attend and why?
Mary Ruggiero: “This event is intended for genuine institutional and retail investors who are considering investment opportunities in cannabis companies. This is your chance to meet the CEOs of companies you are invested in or may be considering investing in, network with like-minded investors, and perhaps be part of a spectacular growth story.”
