The latest addition to our lineup of phenomenal speakers joining us at the 4th annual SAAS NORTH:
Bruce Linton, Founder and Former Chairman and CEO of Canopy Growth Corporation, will be our Closing Keynote at this year’s conference. Bruce’s passion for entrepreneurship and making positive change in the world is met with a wealth of experience in building strong technology companies, building world class teams and positioning his companies to deliver exceptional customer value and service.
Canopy Growth Corp (CGC), was founded in Ontario in 2013, and in 2016 was described as Canada’s first cannabis unicorn with a $1 Billion dollar valuation. By 2018 CGC had a market capitalization of US $14 Billion and became the first cannabis producer on the New York Stock Exchange. CGC’s expansive portfolio includes retail chain Tweed, Inc., Cannabis production farm Tweed Farms and venture capital division Canopy Rivers.
Last summer, Constellation Brands, took a 35% stake in CGC, and the following year as the majority shareholder, restructured the company. Reporting greater than expected losses, Bruce’s relationship with CGC ended. How did a company with unicorn status only a year later hit the front pages of newspapers with a totally different story? What does it take to build a global giant? And what fortitude is necessary to know when it’s time to pass the reigns?
As former CEO of Martello Technologies (another one of Canada’s successful SaaS IPOs), Bruce is now Co-Chairman, and Co-Founder of Ruckify and Better Software. Bruce has been responsible for the acquisition and/or disposition of $6 Billion dollars in business assets.
You won’t want to miss Bruce’s Keynote & Q&A: Your Next Growth Strategy, Do You Have the Grit To Build a Billion Dollar Success, where he will share his insights of the hard fought battles – won and lost, what he hopes for the future of Canadian tech entrepreneurs and if he had to do it all over again, what lessons were most valuable.
