In honor of International Women’s Day, we are releasing our annual “Most Important Women in Weed” list for 2020. This list includes women in the industry that have collectively moved the industry forward with all of their hard work, continuous dedication and effort.

This year we opened up the list for nominations and received almost a thousand nominees. After consideration of each, we have developed what we feel is one of the most inclusive and carefully curated lists of the most accomplished and impressive women in the cannabis industry.

As we could not name them all, we would like to thank and celebrate all of the women who have dedicated their precious time to the advancement of cannabis globally.

It is because of each one of these ladies that this industry remains in the lead above all others as far as female leadership is concerned.

This list is in no special order. Each one of these women provide a great contribution to the cannabis industry in their own unique and badass way.

Thank you to every one of you for all that you do!

She is actively involved in organizations that promote women in the cannabis industry and in 2014 was named as one of the leading medical cannabis entrepreneurs by Congresswoman Dina Titus, on the floor of the House of Representatives.  In 2017, Cannabis Business Executive named Beth #3 on the “CBE 75 Most Important Women In Cannabis” list.

GMR Executive Spotlight Q&A –

Full birth name: Beth Stavola  

Title: Chief Strategy Officer and Director

Company: iAnthus Capital Holdings

Years at current company: <1 

Education profile:  Beth Stavola holds the esteemed honor of being named as one of the leading medical cannabis expert entrepreneurs on the floor of the House of Representatives in 2014 by Congresswoman Dina Titus. She holds a BS in Finance and Economics from Monmouth University and spent most of her Wall Street career at Jefferies and Company.  

Most successful professional accomplishment before cannabis:   While I structured and closed many deals during my time in finance, being the #1 producer in my department the most times during a ten-year career at Jefferies is the highlight. I think it shows my determination to succeed professionally no matter the industry. A personal investment in medical cannabis lead me on this incredible journey where I am able to combine my passion and experience to help people. Sometimes opportunities happen where you least expect them and working with people who have different perspectives can open your mind to new ways of thinking and growing your business.

Company Mission: In the high growth environment of the U.S cannabis market, an experienced team, access to capital and an ability to grow through acquisition are the three key drivers of a company’s success. iAnthus was founded by entrepreneurs who bring together market leading experience in operations, capital markets and M&A.

Combining these skills, we are building a cannabis company that will seize the opportunities this emerging industry offers.

Company’s most successful achievement:  The transformational Deal with MPX which closed in February 2019 was the first public-to-public U.S. cannabis transaction with an HSR filing to be approved by the Department of Justice. The combined company now has operations in 11 states. 

Has the company raised any capital (yes or no): if so, how much?  

We have raised 360mm CAD to date.

Any plans on raising capital in the future? I’m unable to comment on future plans.

Most important company 5-year goal:  Our biggest goal is to expand our brands into new and diverse markets as they open up in the U.S. and abroad. This will ensure that our customers receive the highest quality products in a timely, efficient and reliable way, as our brands become recognized nationally and internationally under the iAnthus umbrella.
