The Accelerator Dedicated

Next Application Deadline: March 31, 2018
Next Program Start: April 20, 2018, Calgary, Alberta
MacaVerde is a business accelerator developed by CBi2 Capital Corp. (CBi2) that invests in start-up companies developing products and services for the legal cannabis industry. The MacaVerde investment model prioritizes connecting its portfolio companies with experienced mentors, industry professionals, MacaVerde alumni, and a broader cannabis investor network, including investor members of CBi2, other institutional funds, and industry-specific cannabis-focused funds.
Companies will be handpicked to receive capital and participate in an intensive 16-week accelerator program. CBi2’s advisors and mentors will work closely with each company to define business models, refine unique selling propositions, and focus marketing and fundraising activities. Accepted applicants into the program will participate in an exclusive “Demo-Day” whereby MacaVerde will showcase their companies to accredited investors highlighting their accomplishments during the 16-week period with the intent of assisting them to identify additional growth capital.
All graduate participants will continue to be members of the MacaVerde ecosystem and will have access to the CBi2 mentor network and business logistic services. Beyond this, CBi2 will continue to support graduate participants after the 16-week period by assisting them to secure additional growth capital, refine and execute on their business plans, grow organically and through strategic acquisitions, and position their companies for a successful exit or liquidity event.
