Full Title: This May Be the Cannabis Industry’s Biggest Mistake
Here's an excerpt of this excellent article:
"Whether in Canada or the U.S., many companies have overextended themselves as they operated under the assumption that capital would always be available to fund their winner-take-all vision. Canadian LPs are now retrenching from overseas markets as well as in Canada, and we expect to see more MSOs narrow their operations. Several of the largest MSOs have been saying for several months now that they will look to build within existing markets rather than expanding into new states.
The lack of focus, though, runs deeper than spreading a company too thin by chasing too many opportunities. When we speak with management teams, we try to understand the company’s core competency, whether it is their ability to create better products through cultivation or processing, to establish strong brands or to deliver an exceptional customer experience through their retail stores.
Over time, we expect companies to hone in on the areas where they are strongest and to outsource, when possible, those areas in which they are not. "
