Servicing the legalized cannabis market since 2014
It all began in the summer of 2014, several months before Measure 91 was set to be voted on by Oregon voters to legalize recreational use of cannabis. The measure was expected to pass by a landslide since the state of Oregon has always had a very tolerant view of the plant, so the phone lines at commercial real estate brokerages with access to retail and industrial space were already lighting up.
Cannabis companies were materializing out of nowhere by brave founders with friends & family capital in their pockets desperate for a space to grow, process, and eventually sell.
The green rush was on.
Flash forward to today, some of these first-movers have either sold to mid-tier consolidators or given up entirely. But many more have soldiered on - surviving oversupply issues and steep pricing drops - to build profitable, sustainable businesses. Businesses that are now in need of capital to scale.
This is where we come in.
MSquared Properties (M2P) :: Commercial Real Estate Brokerage with a specialty in the cannabis industry
MSquared Ventures (M2V) :: Consulting Services for cannabis companies (business asset purchases + sales)
MSquared Holdings (M2H) :: Regenerative commercial real estate development projects specifically tailored to the cannabis industry
MSquared Capital (M2C) :: Venture Capital for premium cannabis companies
M2P is a full-service commercial real estate brokerage licensed in the state of Oregon servicing cannabis companies all over the state. M2V started offering business brokerage services back in 2014 to cannabis companies in Oregon and has since expanded its footprint into other legalized states like, Washington, Michigan, California, Nevada, and Missouri to name a few. M2H is called on when eco-sound, regenerative commercial real estate development work is required to make a project fly.
To complete the service loop for cannabis companies here at MSquared Companies, we needed a solution for those clients who weren’t looking to cash out, but were looking to scale up. Through a carefully curated network of capital partners around the world, M2C can now offer clients access to private capital and other premium services which were previously accessible only to the elite.

investor deck development
A tight, well-developed investor deck is critical to the fundraising process. Anyone who has ever built one will tell you that it is both art and science. It must inform, but be brief. It must excite without hubris. It must be comprehensive, but leave the investor still wanting more. For those clients who need assistance putting an actionable investor deck together that does all of these things and more, M2C is here.
