The Opportunity

Marivest, LLC  intends to invest in the technology and life science sectors, with a specific focus in the emerging “cannabis industry.” The Marivest team and our syndication partners  seeks to cement a leading position within the legal cannabis industry by consolidating market share through strategic investments.

The Market

Marivest, LLC  intends to position itself as the leader in the emerging legal cannabis sector through investment and continued pioneering of first-to-market legal cannabis companies. Marivest LLC seeks to be the first entry in many key legal cannabis opportunities.

 The retail marijuana market in the U.S. is estimated at approximately $30 billion annually according to a recent cover story in the financial publication Barron’s. (Barron’s cover story June 3rd 2013) Currently 21 states and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana for medicinal use, with Colorado and Washington and now Oregon and Alaska also approving recreational adult use.

Already a multi-billion dollar market


Marijuana is Federally Illegal
Even as states continue to expand legalization of cannabis use for medical or recreational use, it’s still illegal federally which means banking and other problems.
Lack of professionalism & experience
Due to the contraband market, prior business experience and professionalism is lacking in the industry.


  • Marivest intends to support Marijuana Policy Project initiatives on a state level as well as PAC  D.C.-based lobbying efforts for the federal legalization of cannabis.
  • Marivest will fund the next wave of professional cannabis entrepreneurs through leading by example
  • Marivest supports the rescheduling of Marijuana on a Federal Level & The Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States (CARERS) Act


Investment Targets

Marivest believe there is an opportunity to advance and consolidate companies in the technology, life sciences and media sectors, particularly within the emerging “cannabis industry.” We are in the process of identifying early target investment opportunities that are industry leaders with professional and state-compliant operations.”

Marivest will be positioned to capitalize on new investment opportunities within the legal cannabis industry.
