Investing in Cannabis

An investment road map solidifies your concept and helps to make it reality. Most cannabis permit acquisition projects fail due to under capitalization and improper planning. Identifying the appropriate action plan from the onset of your project attracts the right financial partners and helps ensure the success of the venture.

Our seven investment offerings will help solidify your vision and circumvent any bumps in the road. We begin with an opportunity analysis that assesses the legal, financial, and political environment of where you want to have your business. The Quantum 9 team analyses patient’s projected medicinal acquisition for determination of appropriate production levels in order to meet market demand and product roll out strategies. In addition, the opportunity analysis assesses the consumer landscape in order to identify optimal product engineering for patient adoption, as well as the optimal marketing approach to maximize consumer purchases. Our market analysis services include both national long-term industry projections and local projections. The national analysis helps us understand the implications of your potential investment while the local state-wide analysis is used to determine patient participation and consumption rates.

Our pro forma services work hand-in-hand with these two analyses to offer a comprehensive business models and projection spreadsheet tailored to the client’s needs. Consumption projections included are operating costs, cost of goods sold, revenue projections, employee overhead, building costs, necessary manufacturing space as well as others. Company evaluation projections include earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization schedules, profit and loss, cash flow, and return on investment. The business plan culminates the market analyses and the pro forma to include a corporate overview of the organization. This includes director biographies, manager qualifications, product line overviews, marketing strategies, investor packages, and many other resources.

The next step is a professional grade investor presentation in a video proposal. It includes highlights from the market and opportunity analyses, pro forma, business plan and graphical representations in the form of a high-impact presentation. The investor video is an excellent introduction to the presentation because it is highly structured and graphical while providing critical areas of past and projected success. A potential investor would receive a highly customizable take away that highlights the most relevant aspects of the presentations after the meeting. It allows the client to provide potential investors with the most noteworthy aspects of the presentation in a form that avoids exposure of sensitive information such as the actual pro forma or business plan.

The facility concept compiles information from the analyses mentioned above and allows us to make projections of output, as the size of the facility, and other key constraints determine production levels. The schematic design set offers guidance at various parts of the project including an accurate estimate of revenue projections, which depend upon an accurate conceptual schematic design. These are also used to estimate the cost of construction, cost of operation, and employee acquisition. The facility concept allows for AutoCAD blueprint floor plans to be made which are a crucial part of any business plan involving a cultivation facility. It also serves as proof of concept and adds validity to many areas of the business plan including capital expenditure, costs of goods sold, and operational overhead. The floor plan also includes a plant and light count and can even be rendered in 3D visually stimulate the audience, present a convincing concept, and create an eagerness to see the project through to realization.

If you are interested in attracting the right investors to your project, or would like to add one of these services to your business portfolio, reach out to our team at Quantum 9 today to see how we can help you realize those dreams.
