CannaIncome Fund is a private investment company focused on the cannabis and cannabis-related sectors. Our aim is to provide yield and capital appreciation upside, via valuation arbitrage opportunities primarily between private and public markets.
We leverage our collective industry and capital markets experience to find early-stage cannabis-focused companies in US and Canada, with a niche product and/or a sustainable competitive advantage.
Our goal is to work with, and advise, companies to find capital solutions which expedite their path to positive cash flow. Although not a requisite for all investments, our bias is to find instruments where we rank higher in the capital structure with distributions that occur before taxes (reducing taxable events for companies).
