Cannabis businesses are part of a billion-dollar industry, but with so much money at stake, it’s important to find the right funding opportunities for your existing or startup cannabusiness. The two most common funding paths are lending and investment, but there are some factors you should take into consideration. You need to decide what's right for you and your business to ensure the best possibility of success.
First things first, finding investors for a startup in federally legal businesses is already hard enough. So, naturally, when it comes to the cannabis industry, that struggle is only going to multiply. Investment in a cannabis business is different than other businesses. It’s still considered risky, even volatile, even though there’s a lot of money at play. The legal status of cannabis in a number of states across the US is still in flux, which can make it hard to land investors in the first place.
In the event that your business is able to acquire an investor for your new business, you might encounter more limits and hurdles than you initially had before an investor. While you may have the money you need, it may come at the price of control of your vision and dream. With an investor, there are now other decision-makers in the picture, and this is something to seriously consider.
There are other ways to acquire any startup funding you may need for your new cannabis business. At first it may seem daunting to find the money you're looking for. Finding the right lenders isn't easy for an industry that's so new and still not federally legal. Going at it alone without investors or other support can seem frustrating, but that doesn't mean there aren't resources out there for you as a business owner.
Despite the potential challenges for finding the right lender for your cannabis business, it’s still a better option than an investor. There's no guarantee that an investor willing to invest in your business has the background and experience to provide adequate guidance as you navigate the cannabis industry. Partnering with industry professionals with experience, especially when it comes to acquiring any funding or financing, is crucial. Be sure to surround yourself with those who have the know-how to actively help you meet your goals and fund your dreams.
