LISTENING

TO LEADERS

We have been investing and actively participating in the industry, but more importantly we have been observing and listening to industry leaders, gaining a deep understanding of the numerous industry pain points. This is a small sample of some of the initiatives that we have been a part of:

As the industry scales we believe that distribution and marketing strategies for brands are paramount for growth.  Brands that can optimize multi-channel go to market strategies will yield maximum potential. Our partnership and investment with the leading delivery service platform, EAZE, amplifies the importance we place on distribution and data as we innovate consumer engagement to fuel growth.

As the cannabis and hemp industry matures, ensuring a consistent and compliant supply of both biomass and extracted materials is critical for future demand. Due to the speed of industry growth and fluid regulatory changes, issues like tracking and validating toxins in real time, manufacturing yield management and efficient compliance practices will be obstacles to scale.  ULTRANATIVE is prepared to support our companies to stay ahead of compliance headwinds through our work with AGTECH, a mass spectrometry technology developed for the international space station, to bring in-field mass spectrometry technology to the cannabis industry.

Thanks to new rules enacted by the current administration, banks are forbidden to loan money to cannabis companies under the traditional SBA program. As a result, cannabis companies have a hard time raising debt capital, which has driven the average cost of capital for a US-based cannabis company up to 30-40%. To help create additional paths to capital, ULTRANATIVE formed a joint venture with Chroma.Exchange to offer supply chain-based credit modeling to the industry which enables companies to more effectively scale their  operations through access to additional working capital.

ULTRANATIVE has been actively working with data scientists and the broader medical community to help drive innovation in the way data is accessed, used and shared across all aspects of the industry. And although there is still more work to be done, we are driving best practices forward, enabling a future where the consumer is ultimately able to interface with custom and personalized, plant-based medical formulations that can effectively resolve specific medical conditions with the highest values of scientific efficacy.
