Poseidon Co-Founder Emily Paxhia wrote an article that appeared last week in the Cannabis Business Times. Read the summary here.
The story of Poseidon is a personal one marked by struggle, hardship, and hard-won success. But as difficult as some of these events were to live through, they made us what we are today. We would never be as passionate about what we do without them. This is our story.
Poseidon founders Emily and Morgan Paxhia were interviewed last week on the CannaInsider podcast by host Matthew Kind. The interview tells the story of how the Paxhias were drawn to this industry, and how their backgrounds make forming the pioneer hedge fund investing in cannabis the perfect melding of their strengths.
An inspiring interview with the co-founders of Poseidon Asset Management was published in Cashinbis this week. In it, we get to tell a little of our story, why we started this business, and offer advice to both new investors and entrepreneurs in the space.
Poseidon was recently invited by Opal Financial Group to present in Napa at a financial investor conference. It was an interesting and educational experience for all parties involved. Here's what we learned--and what it means for the cannabis industry at large.
This week, we are in Chicago at the ArcView Group's Investor meeting. Wednesday night, we will be at the cocktail mixer, and Thursday at the meeting throughout the day , which is held at the Intercontinental Hotel. We will have a table at the event--so just look for us or the wave logo!
At this ArcView meeting, we have the pleasure of mentoring two companies, which Emily will introduce on stage.
In addition, we are giving a talk on "Building a Compelling & Cohesive Brand in the Cannabis Industry" as well as a talk on "The Future of Small Cap Public Stocks."
Looking forward to connecting with you in the Windy City!
Poseidon Asset Management was mentioned in a recent article in Institutional Investor on the green rush. The article, which approaches the newly blooming industry with guarded enthusiasm, brings up both the ArcView Group and the Marijuana Policy Project, as well--both of which Poseidon is a member.
Despite some skepticism, "some investors attent that it's time to 'harness the green wave,'" Institutional Investor begins, "echoing the slogan of the San Francisco-based firm, Poseidon Asset Management. Morgan Paxhia, a former financial advisor with UBS, and his sister, Emily Paxhia, launched Poseidon last October. The firm... is launching a hedge fund that invests in the cannabis and hemp-related assets."
