Chief Operating Officer Beth Stavola to Share Insights on Emerging Cannabis Market
TORONTO, Sept. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MPX Bioceutical Corporation (“MPX” or the “Company”) (CSE: MPX; OTC: MPXEF) announced that Beth Stavola, Chief Operating Officer of MPX, will be speaking at the ‘Cannabis and the Capital Markets’ panel at the Cannabis World Congress Business Expo (CWCBE) being held on Thursday, September 27, 2018 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in downtown Los Angeles.
Business opportunities in the cannabis industry are at an all-time high as the market is developing on a global level. There are still many layers to success in this industry and one of its leading voices, Beth Stavola, will provide industry insights to the panel addressing the pitfalls, opportunities, and lessons learned from the process of going public as a cannabis company in the United States and Canada.
The panel of speakers will be moderated by Lewis Goldberg, Managing Partner of KCSA Strategic Communications, and will include Kris Krane, President and Co-Founder, 4Front; Tahira Rehmattulah, Chief Financial Officer, MTech Acquisition Corp. and Managing Director, Hypur Ventures; William Simpson, CEO, Golden Leaf Holdings (CSE: GLH) (OTCQB: GLDFF) and Beth Stavola; c-suite executives of leading cannabis companies who have recently gone public or are in the process of going public.
“Taking a company from private to public is already a very challenging process, let alone attempting to do so in the cannabis industry,” said Mrs. Stavola. “This panel considers all factors along the continuum of growing the industry and outlines strategies for effectively growing a cannabis company, providing a vital educational resource for entrepreneurs looking to enter the industry.”
Mrs. Stavola, who entered the cannabis industry in 2012 as an investor, became Chief Operating Officer of MPX Corporation when they purchased her flourishing Arizona marijuana venture in January 2017. She is also the President of US Operations for MPX.
