Scott Dowty, CEO of Australis Capital

Scott Dowty, CEO of Australis Capital, the United States spin off of the Canadian LP Aurora Cannabis, is this week’s guest on the Green Rush! Since launching as the U.S. investment arm of Aurora in 2017, Australis has operated independently and most recently went public in September 2018 on the OTC. As CEO, Scott is on the front lines for Australis, helping the company navigate the highly regulated U.S. market to identify exciting investment opportunities for the company.

In this week’s conversation, our Green Rush hosts chat with Scott about the mission of Australis, what he is observing from the marketplace so far in 2019,  what he puts more value on – the management team or underlying business and provides some insight on what kind of deals he’s most focused on. The team also gets Scott’s perspective on the recent Canopy-Acreage deal and some of the concerns around well-funded Canadian LPs, like Canopy and Aurora, will swallow up U.S. companes.

If your a listener focused on investing in cannabis, this episode will touch on every aspect of that side of the business. So don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy!
