We are delighted to announce Alexej Pikovsky, CEO of Alphagreen Group will be joining the debate at the Cannabis Investor Forum.

Alexej and his co-founders saw the need to help European customers access the best brands in wellness and medical cannabis. Having raised capital from well-known tech angels and family offices, alphagreen.io was launched, a data-driven marketplace for wellness products in the UK and Europe. Separately, Alphagreen Group will have a presence in Germany with the aim to obtain a license to import and sell medical cannabis to pharmacies.

Prior to Alphagreen, Alexej has been working as an investor for a large-cap private equity fund and a family office where he ran the venture capital operations. He gained operational and board-level experience working closely with Compo Expert, the largest European specialty fertiliser business, as well as leading their trade sale.
