About Canopy Rivers Corporation

Canopy Rivers is a unique investment and operating platform structured to pursue opportunities in the emerging global cannabis sector. The Company is managed by an experienced team of qualified financial and technical professionals with deep industry experience and relationship networks; but what makes Canopy Rivers truly unique is the Company’s strategic partnership and cornerstone investment from Canopy Growth Corporation.

Canopy Rivers works collaboratively with Canopy Growth to identify strategic counterparties seeking financial and/or operating support and affiliation with the Canopy Growth group of companies. The result is an ecosystem of complementary companies operating throughout the cannabis value chain. As the portfolio continues to develop, each constituent benefits from opportunities to collaborate with Canopy Growth and among themselves, which the company believes results in an ideal environment for innovation, synergy, and value creation for Canopy Rivers, Canopy Growth, and across the entire Rivers ecosystem.

To date, in collaboration with Canopy Growth, Canopy Rivers has quickly established a diversified portfolio of cannabis industry investments that includes licensed producers, late stage applicants, pharmaceutical formulators, branded developers & distributors, and technology & media platforms. Investments are customized for each counterparty and include a balanced mix of equity, debt, royalty, and profit sharing agreements.
