On May 15, 2020, Benzinga will be hosting its Virtual Deal Room, an exclusive gathering connecting cannabis companies and institutional investors. Among the attendees is Conor Green Consulting.  

Conor Green Consulting, a project development firm, is working with Sovereign Indian Nations seeking regulatory-compliant opportunities in legal cannabis. 

Started in 2015, the firm’s mission is to assist tribes in their goals of bringing economic development opportunities and holistic medicine to their Nation and people. 

TJ Bergeron, Managing Partner at Conor Green Consulting, will be joining the line-up of speakers at the Virtual Deal Room to discuss tribal cannabis and their partnership with the Shinnecock Indian Nation in Southampton, New York. They will be working with the tribe to build and operate a full-scale, vertically integrated cannabis business on tribal land.

The Effects Of COVID-19

In generating partnerships during a difficult and uncertain time, Bergeron spoke with Benzinga on how COVID-19 has affected their work, as well as, the cannabis industry in general.

“Certainly, COVID-19 has changed the way we all live, work, and interact ‒ the cannabis industry is not immune from this, but it has also created a watershed industry moment going from ‘illegal’ to an ‘essential business,’ which has been extraordinary to witness.” 

Bergeron, who was originally an angel investor in the company, took over controlling interest in 2018. He has since dedicated all of his efforts into building the company and carrying out its mission of bringing long-lasting economic development opportunities to tribal communities.

“The painful job and revenue loss in the U.S. and within native tribes has been unparalleled these last few months, but it brings about even more reason and need for a regulated cannabis marketplace, which has to include tribes.”

For those interested in attending the event, the company will also be discussing investment opportunities to help bolster their team and activities.

“The opportunity is unlike many others — to bring jobs, career development, and social equity, through our favorite plant, to our country’s aboriginal people who have been largely excluded and minimized throughout U.S. history.”
