Argonaut
Loan Brokerage

In order to maintain control over their operation, many cannabis business owners opt for a business loan instead of building a pool of equity investments. We help businesses understand the best loan providers for their type of business and negotiate terms that are most beneficial to achieving operating objectives. It goes without saying that the risk on capital or at least the perception of capital risk, in the cannabis market is higher than in other industries. Despite this hurdle, Argonaut has built a network of investors — both debt and equity providers – that target this risk profile and provide reasonable loans and capital investments to new and growing cannabis businesses.
