Electrum Partners is a venture development company specializing in
medical and adult use cannabis and ancillary businesses

As a venture development company, we are driven to help companies become winners in a crowded landscape by putting experienced leaders into your value chain to help shape your future success. Electrum Partners will help you develop strategies from a competitive context, bringing powerful solutions for growth, added value, and the knowledge to forge a path forward (or the awareness and confidence to pivot away).

We respect big ideas and worship attention to detail, diligence, expertise and planning: we also thrive on seizing opportunity while gracefully navigating hurdles when the moment calls.

We value questions as much as answers, consider teamwork the highest calling and believe that wisdom is best served with humility and humanity. We strive to mold strong leadership with winning strategies.
