#274 – Mitch Baruchowitz, Merida Capital Holdings - Is The Trade Over? No…It’s Just Getting Going In Some Ways

70 minutes

In episode 274, we welcome our guest, Mitch Baruchowitz, a Managing Partner at Merida Capital Holdings, a private equity firm targeting fundamental growth drivers underpinning the rapid development of the cannabis industry.

In today’s episode we’re talking about investing in the cannabis space. We hear what piqued Mitch’s interest in the cannabis space and what the process was like to get a cannabis license in Connecticut and build and operate a 65,000 square foot facility. Mitch explains what led him to start Merida Capital and how he knocked it out of the park with his investment in the unicorn GrowGen. We chat about what types of investments he looks to make and what the impact of COVID and 2020 elections have had on the space.

As we wind down, Mitch shares why he launched a SPAC in 2019 before the craze began and what that process was like.

Please enjoy this episode with Merida Capital Holdings’, Mitch Baruchowitz.
