Being a venture capitalist means being the centralized ignition point to connect ideas, people and resources. Creating something where there was nothing is the best way I know how to contribute to our society that has given us so much. Spent 3.5 years playing Jr. Hockey in Canada. Business School at Nichols College in Massachusetts. Cut my teeth at Merrill Lynch in Private Wealth. Executed the syndicate ‘buys’ for IPOs and secondary issues. I developed a specialty in bringing private equity alternatives into our portfolio. My work in private deals growing up and then again with ML is where I developed a taste for venture capital and began looking for an entry point outside of the constraints of a large firm.
In 2015, Colorado we formed Cliintel Capital Management Group, a venture firm focused on emerging markets and more specifically cannabis. CCMG became the first Qualified Institutional Investment capital firm in Colorado to own THC licensed facilities through a venture fund.
We have acquired, built and growing cannabis companies across the supply chain preparing for ubiquitous legalization across the globe starting here in the epicenter of the cannabis universe, Colorado.
