This special presentation from Halo Labs comes from Benzinga's Virtual Cannabis Capital Conference that took place on October 15. Click here for more coverage of this event with presentations from some of the top CEOs, investors and lenders in the cannabis space. Halo Labs Inc (OTC: AGEEF) is a multi-state operator that develops and manufactures cannabis oils and concentrates. In addition to being an MSO, the company is also a multi-country operator given its recent acquisitions of Bophelo Bioscience and the U.K.'s Canmart. President of Halo Labs Katie Field spoke on some of the positive developments happening in the U.K. Among those developments is an expansion of access to cannabis for medical patients and a policy project to do patient enrollments."That's where our focus is, is with that patient growth and with limited manufacturing in the country," said Field. "When you familiarize yourself with the market research that's out there, the U.K. is just a very promising market."Market Trends Since the start of COVID, many executives in the space have noted shifts in both the market and consumer buying trends. "We've actually seen a shift towards edibles. We've seen that play out in both Oregon and California and we've also seen sort of a return to flower in general," said Field. "That's been an interesting trend to observe and one we've tried to stay at the forefront of."Another notable trend, similar to the alcohol industry, is that consumers are going towards more cost-affordable products."In Oregon, that's always been our bread and butter. We've always tried to provide quality products at an affordable price. It's always kind of been what we've tried to do with Hush," she said.Hush is a brand under the Halo Lab's umbrella that specializes in edibles. The brand recently released 10-piece units of cannabis-infused Hush gummies to dispensaries in California at a wholesale list sale price of $6.50."One thing, particularly in the California market ... that's been our focus, is not going away from quality and price and marrying the two to provide affordable products," said Field. "We always do that with our Hush line, but definitely, we've been looking at branded products as well."Woman In Cannabis As a female executive in the cannabis space, Field was asked about what advice she had for other women aspiring to be in a leadership role.Field quoted a commencement speech given by Steve Jobs at her college graduation ceremony. Jobs famously said that "You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something ‒ your gut, life, karma, or whatever."Field elaborated on Jobs' point saying, "A lot of us take traditional and nontraditional paths to get to where we are but if we follow our interests and our passions, looking back, everything makes sense."She went on to say, "I really abide by the lean in philosophy, but selective lean in. You can prioritize depending on, 'it's time for me to focus on my family,' or 'it's time for me to focus on my work,' and over time you just get to where you need to be and it all starts with knowing what your passions are and following your heart."Photo by Jose Luis Sanchez Pereyra on UnsplashSee more from Benzinga * Click here for options trades from Benzinga * How AdvisorShares Determines What Stocks To Include In Its Cannabis ETFs * TILT Holdings On The Future Of The Cannabis Market And Current Technology Developments(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.

Technology startup offers personalized and print boutique-quality greeting cards Card Isle was founded in 2013 by three Virginia Tech engineering students passionate about making greeting cards more personal, accessible and fun! www.cardisle.com Card Isle www.cardisle.com Richmond, VA, Oct. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Center for Innovative Technology (CIT) today announced that the Virginia Founders Fund (VFF) has invested in Card Isle, a Blacksburg, Va.-based technology company that is rethinking how greeting cards can be distributed in a changing retail landscape. Card Isle offers turnkey solutions to design, order, and print personalized greeting cards, and will use this capital from VFF to continue their rapid growth in the eCommerce gifting sector and develop new markets. Greeting cards have a unique ability to connect people of all generations, whether it is to celebrate a birthday or anniversary, or to express sympathy or gratitude. Card Isle is focused on creating a stress-free card-buying experience by making greeting cards more personal, accessible, and fun. Card Isle’s suite of personalized greeting card printing solutions are used by retailers across the U.S. and Canada, allowing consumers to customize cards online and print them on-demand at a location convenient to them. Retailers can also use Card Isle’s ecommerce solutions to cross-sell personalized greeting cards with any product ordered online. “For an industry worth $6.2 billion dollars, the typical card-buying experience is pretty grim. If you’re like me, you probably spend a lot of time searching for the right card, but still settle on a mediocre one. Card Isle is here to change that experience,” said Adam Donato, CEO of Card Isle. “We make it possible for customers to design their own cards from home, through the businesses and services they already use. This also increases the average order value for our partners. We are grateful for the support of Virginia Founders Fund, which will play a significant role in our growth.” Card Isle offers over 15,000 designs created by local and independent artists for businesses and users to choose from and create meaningful greeting cards. The company takes on the roles of sales, marketing, operations and distribution infrastructure so that artists can focus on what they do best: creating. Artists receive a royalty on every card that is printed. Card Isle’s solutions for ecommerce retailers include automated printing, managed inventory such as cardstock, ink and envelopes, and a fully customizable API that can be integrated into existing websites. “Greeting cards are a profitable item in brick and mortar stores, but it can be a hassle to offer cards for customer pickup. Card Isle’s turnkey solution allows cards to be designed and personalized on a business’ website, and then printed on-demand at their stores,” said Tom Weithman, Managing Director, CIT GAP Funds. “Card Isle is breaking into an incredible market opportunity and has already secured strong partnerships with industry leaders such as 1800 Flowers and Canon. We look forward to being part of Card Isle’s journey.” Launched in 2018, the Virginia Founders Fund (VFF) shines a light on the creativity and impact of entrepreneurs arising from Virginia communities traditionally underserved by risk capital. Through VFF, CIT GAP Funds has committed more than $3M of its returns for reinvestment in female founders, founders of color, veteran founders and founders located in regions outside of Northern Virginia, seeking to maximize both the economic development and social equity imperatives of the Commonwealth. For more information, please visit www.cit.org. About Card Isle Card Isle Corporation is a technology company that is rethinking how greeting cards can be distributed in a changing retail landscape. They combine crowd-sourced designs with distributed printers to empower retailers and businesses of all types—and now home users—to create meaningful greeting cards. A Techstars Alumni company based in Blacksburg, Virginia, Card Isle is dedicated to empowering connections between people with accessible, playful, and personalized greeting cards. For more information, please visit www.cardisle.com. About the Virginia Founders Fund Launched in 2018, the Virginia Founders Fund (VFF) is focused on providing venture capital for Virginia’s traditionally underrepresented entrepreneurs. Proceeds from the Center for Innovative Technology’s (CIT) successful GAP Funds investment program are being reinvested into the Virginia economy through the VFF, which specifically supports female, minority or veteran founders, or other entrepreneurs located in regions outside of Northern Virginia who are emerging into sectors such as software, hardware, life science, cleantech, and technology-enabled services. The VFF works with regional startup initiatives, early-stage funds, and accelerator programs across the Commonwealth to identify strategic opportunities for investment and potential co-investment to leverage additional capital.
