On this edition of The Cannabis Today Podcast, we’re joined by Louis Han- Director of Deal Flow at the Arcview Investor Network. The Arcview Group is a 9 year old investor network that has placed more than $230M into the cannabis space – from SaaS, agtech, private Canadian LPs, media, and more. About $160M of investment was in the last 3 years alone. We work with fund managers, family offices, and accredited investors to find investment opportunities in the cannabis industry.
As Director of Deal Flow, Louis’s role is to work with all of the companies who are trying to raise capital from the Arcview Investor Network. He has seen thousands of pitches from companies of all shapes and sizes – startups, growth stage, plant-touching, ancillary, first time founders, serial entrepreneurs, Fortune 500 execs – you name it. The cannabis industry became his passion after founding, operating and exiting a tax-paying medical cannabis collective that reached over 300 patients in the San Francisco Bay Area in just 1 year. A long-time advocate for local and international communities in need, Mr. Han had the privilege of arguing a deportation case pro bono in front of the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, receiving multiple awards for pro bono service within the Silicon Valley community, teaching ESL to underprivileged youth in South Korea, and community leadership with Rotary International. He received his law degree from Santa Clara University with a focus on corporate law and immigration. He received his B.A. from the University of California, Davis.
