Capital Fundraising -- Capital Assistance


Looking for advice on capital fundraising. Our group is one of 14 manufacturers to submit application as well as being approved at the municipal level here in Massachusetts. We are looking to take on investors to complete our infrastructure buildout and to provide initial operating capital.

Any advice, tips, or sources is greatly appreciated!




First Merchant Bank Card services offers various loan and JV programs to the cannabis industry. We’d be happy to hear of any capital requests. Many of our clients are also looking to invest in cannabis related projects.


If at any time an investor would require a financial guarantee bond to help secure the agreement, let me know. I can definitely help you with that.

What is a financial guarantee bond and why would an investor require it?
This is all new to me.


The bond would be in place as a level of security for investors…kind of like insurance but not insurance. So should something happen adversely and the investor, let’s say, does not get a return on what he invested per your agreement, the bond could then come into play for the investor.

So basically it can be looked upon as guaranteeing a loan. Another way it could come into play is if you are seeking investors to build a cultivation facility or dispensary, you could require a payment and performance bond for the contractor building the facility. This would help make sure that the GC performs the duties per the construction contract and pays his vedors and/or subcontractors for their work.

There are more ways a bond can come into play in all sorts of situations so I would need to know more from you to better give you an idea of how it can help.
