Being a feminist is easier said than done. But these women are putting their money where their mouths are: in front of women.
As cannabis really penetrates the mainstream, an increasing number of highly skilled, intelligent people are getting into the industry. And, while most of these characters generate the utmost respect, very few are really, really impressive – at least in my book.
Two ladies who have certainly earned the latter description are cannabis-focused investment managers: Tahira Rehmatullah, Managing Director of Hypur Ventures and chief financial officer at Nasdaq-listed cannabis tech company MTech Acquisition Corp., and Emily Paxhia, co-founder and managing partner of what is often seen as the first long-short, cannabis-focused hedge fund in the world, Poseidon Asset Management.
Another group of impressive, experienced women in cannabis is behind cannabis-focused venture fund Treehouse Global Ventures, a fund that, as its website explains, was founded by women and “designed to identify, mentor and grow women and minority-founded cannabis-related businesses.” They are Lindy Snider, Lori Ferrara, and Gaynell Rogers.
