Thanks for sharing your new venture!

To kick off the AMA questions - what are the biggest challenges you see facing the cannabis funding landscape at the moment?

How does AllGreen fund its clients? I imagine the banking situation makes direct monetary aid difficult.

Based on the type of business we utilize many personal funding and asset backed options. Some businesses can qualify for corporate credit. Whether debt or equity we analyze the A,B.C’s of funding. Assets, Business Revenue and Credit profile.

If a CannaBusiness operator has real estate, and/or licenses and experience we have groups of funders for both debt and equity transactions. If not we are looking primarily at credit based and income based options

We also have some amazing equipment financing options as well. If AllGreen Funding can’t get funding for a project the only other options is friends and family because we analyze literally every program

Is it more of a buyer’s market or a seller’s market at the moment? I.e. are there more people looking to invest, or more people looking for funding?

Also, how does AllGreen protect itself from bad faith actors?

Nick, great question. There are so many CannaBusiness opportunities at the moment that raising equity is challenging with favorable terms, therefore I would say it’s a buyer’s market meaning investors have the upper hand since there is still much uncertainty with the industry. We get structured debt financing for single digit interest so why give up all your equity when debt is an option. Exhaust debt first is our position if you want guaranteed funding

Hunter all of our funder and lending partners have strict due diligence and underwriting guidelines to protect against these types of unethical practices

What things can a cannabis business that is looking for funding do to help up their chances of getting funded?

2 Likes

Good credit profile helps whether debt or equity because it tells the operators story. Real estate with equity, strong and well kept financial records, reporting and depositing income into a business and/or personal bank account

2 Likes

We have options for people with sub par credit as well. Real estate, retirement assets, stock portfolios, existing equipment can be used no matter the credit profile

What do you think of the state of cannabis stocks at the moment? Do you agree with articles like this one?

Rick,

Thanks for hosting this AMA on a great topic! Can you comment on the availability or opportunities for “sandbox” money for companies to explore early product development, marketing efforts etc? What types of things would investors, that are willing to contribute early money, like to see out of these companies?

@AllGreenUSA Could you please share some of your public resources / research with us? You are welcome to reply with links or upload the actual files. We want to include them in our knowledge base for cannabis businesses in the future looking for funding.

Visit www.allgreenfunding.com and we can analyze your funding viability within minutes, educating you on EVERY program

Everything we do is completely performance based so if we don’t get you funded we make zero

Nick I would agree with this article because there is a lack of professional and well rounded CannaBusiness operators. Funding is only a component to business success which is why we developed the www.cannabissmartsource.com to help make informed B2B decisions and scale your growth with the right team.

If you’re that early phase and don’t have friends and/or family investors we highly recommend exploring debt options. Every CannaBusiness is poking investors in the eye with their investment pitch deck and the investors are apprehensive
