ANNOUNCING NESTA HOLDING CO. AS THE LANYARD SPONSOR FOR CANNABIS EUROPA TORONTO

Cannabis Europa is proud to announce Nesta Holding Co. Ltd. as the Lanyard sponsor for our Toronto conference on November 5th at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel.

Nesta Holding Co. Ltd. is a Canadian private equity firm specialising in the global cannabis industry. Nesta was founded in 2015 by Chuck Rifici, also known as the “Godfather of Canadian weed” and as the true pioneer of the North American cannabis industry, having previously started Canopy Growth (formerly Tweed Marijuana) and acted as former CFO of Canada’s Liberal Party. Using his wealth of knowledge and unparalleled experience in the industry, Rifici’s mission is to make Nesta the premier partner for companies aspiring to create and shape the nascent legalised cannabis industry.

Cannabis Europa is a great event to be a part of whether you’re a speaker or a spectator. For all those involved in cannabis, regardless of geography or area of interest, Cannabis Europa offers us all a platform to contribute to our industry’s movement. Here in Canada, as so many of us set our sights on Europe, having this event come to us in Toronto is a great opportunity to connect with and learn from European players. – Chuck Rifici, Chair and CEO of Nesta Holding Co. Ltd.

Nesta will be joining our Cannabis Europa: Transatlantic Forum in Toronto on November 5th to share how they are integral in shaping user experience across the medical and recreational cannabis industries in North America.

Nesta employs a value approach to a concentrated portfolio of opportunities in legalised jurisdictions in order to develop, advocate and invest in partner technologies and new products.

As Canada is set to become one of the biggest markets for cannabis products, Rifici and his partners at Nesta are focusing on helping existing brands tap into Canada’s market as well as developing completely new brands for this nascent industry. Nesta will thus act as the first point of contact for brands looking to expand into Canada and other countries who are now at the forefront of the legal cannabis market.

I’m thrilled to be invited to discuss with George and the audience all that has happened in the Canadian market and all that is to come as we move into the second phase of legalization and turn our sights to international opportunities. – Chuck Rifici, Chair and CEO of Nesta Holding Co. Ltd.

Join us on November 5th at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto to learn about the latest news concerning research, innovation and the production of medicinal cannabis in Europe from those who are at the forefront of this change.
