The cannabis industry is on the verge of explosive growth but faces challenges unlike any other in recent corporate history. Its products have been illegal for more than eight decades, and its transition to legitimacy will demand expertise in marketing, venture capitalism, quality control, satisfying concerns of regulators, and meeting pent-up demand from consumers and Wall Street.
Into this new world, Sheri L. Orlowitz’s 30-plus-year experience as an entrepreneur, venture capitalist, turn-around expert, board director, corporate leader, attorney, and former federal prosecutor make her uniquely qualified not only to lead companies in the cannabis industry but also to advise regulators and provide strategic investment advice. Few can match her track record of success.
As the founder of Artemis Holdings Group LLC and the Council for Federal Cannabis Regulation (“CFCR”), Sheri has assembled a team of creative professionals with decades of experience dealing with all stages of the life-cycle of the industry and exceptional values. Sheri develops the strategy behind Artemis’ private investment fund, using her worldwide network of banks, funds, government officials, and CEOs to identify opportunities and ensure they are on the cutting edge of innovation. Those same connections, together with some of the best scientific, regulatory, business, and policy minds in the country, have helped her to create and build out CFCR, the only organization focused on providing expertise to the federal agencies to regulate cannabis and dispel the stigmatization around cannabis through education and data.
