Our initial business combination and value creation strategy will be to identify, acquire and, after our initial business combination, assist in the growth of a business ancillary to the cannabis industry, with a particular sector focus that includes compliance, business intelligence, brand development and media.
Our management team has collectively invested over $30 million in cannabis-related businesses in the last 3+ years, more than half of which is personal capital. In 2016, Steven Van Dyke and Scott Sozio, both members of our management team, founded Hypur Ventures,( https://hypurventures.com/ ) a venture capital fund dedicated to investing in businesses that operate in the cannabis industry. Hypur Ventures is fully invested with positions in eight portfolio companies engaged in various aspects of the cannabis industry not “touching the plant”, including compliance, business intelligence, brand development and media. Our management believes its investments have established market leadership positions and emerging track records of customer acquisition in this high-growth industry. We believe our management team’s history of completing cannabis transactions and building businesses that require creative solutions give us a unique ability to combine with an attractive company in this industry.
Our management team is led by Steven Van Dyke, our Chairman, who has more than 30 years of capital management experience, having founded and run two hedge funds with over $1 billion in assets under management, most recently as founding partner of New York-based BHR Capital LLC. Mr. Van Dyke built his career and reputation around his expertise in alternative investments, including restructurings, venture capital and real estate.
Our strategy will be to invest in businesses that are ancillary to the production, distribution and sale of cannabis, with a particular focus on three segments of the industry:
· Compliance, Business Intelligence, · Brands & Media:
