Diversified Cannabis Investments

Investment Focus

Elevate Acquisition Corp invests in “touch the plant” verticals within the cannabis industry. Our business model provides innovative solutions, secured debt & equity participation resulting in above average profits.

The Opportunity

It is seldom that a new industry is born. When it arrives, most investors do not immediately recognize or seize the opportunity. Cannabis is that new industry. It’s an industry that gives the small individual investor a first mover advantage. Why, you ask? Because the States and the Federal Government are diametrically opposed. Medical cannabis is legal in 30 States, DC and Puerto Rico and recreational marijuana is legal in 8 States BUT it is still classified as a Schedule 1 drug and is therefore illegal as mandated by our Federal Government.

Billion-dollar VC firms are currently investing in the Canadian cannabis marketplace because cannabis is approved both medically and (starting July 2018) recreationally throughout the entire country. However, they cannot invest in the US cannabis market because it is federally illegal. This anomaly makes it difficult for cannabis companies to access capital while allowing Elevate to negotiate deals that provide above average returns for our investors.

Cannabis industry is currently producing over $50 Billion a year in revenue. It’s just not all legal. In 2016 $6.7 billion was reported as legal State sales with an additional $46.4 billion of revenues derived from the black market. However, as 30 States start transitioning from medical to recreational marijuana most black market revenues will convert to legal status. It is not where the industry is today but where it will be in the next decade.


We have identified 4 unique investment opportunities.

Our goal is to develop a diversified portfolio of cannabis investments that are vertically integrated. Elevate provides advisory services, transparency and complete financial oversight as conditions for funding our cannabis entrepreneurs. This approach mitigates risk while providing a substantial ROI to our investors. Our typical deal involves a secured loan with high risk interest rate plus majority equity stake.

We believe there is a window of opportunity to invest in the cannabis industry and reap substantial returns. Once the federal government legalizes cannabis (which we expect to happen in the next 5 to 7 years) big tobacco, pharma and VC private equity firms will enter the space and the game is over for the small investor.

Exit Strategy

Our exit strategy is to take Elevate public by the end of 2019. Currently, the public markets are awarding cannabis companies with above average valuations. We believe this trend will continue for the foreseeable future. We have witnessed some public companies trading for 30X revenues.

Upon the Company achieving traction within the cannabis marketplace we will use commercially reasonable efforts to file a Registration Statement on Form S-1 (or other suitable or successor form) (the “Registration Statement”) with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), therein registering, for resale by the investors, the shares of Common Stock underlying the Units under the Securities Act of 1933 as, amended (the “Securities Act”), sold in our Offering, and to have the SEC declare the Registration Statement effective under the Securities Act as soon as possible. The Company may also opt for a Canadian or other Foreign Exchange listing if the Company cannot qualify for or is prohibited from listing on a US exchange due to current federal laws concerning cannabis.
