Mentor Capital Anchors Women Grow Event on Cannabis Funding

First Dollar Family and Friends Funding to Going Public by Mentor Spinoff Explained by CEO

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mentor Capital, Inc. (OTCQB: MNTR) reports that CEO, Chet Billingsley, presented and explained the range of financing options available over the life cycle of a cannabis business. The packed audience was gathered at the Women Grow event in Orange County and included Mentor shareholders, marijuana entrepreneurs and potential candidates to be taken public by Mentor Capital via spinoff to its shareholders. Family and friends financing, grants, SBA loans, private placements, the emotions of asking for funds, reverse mergers and founder’s risks on Wall Street were all personally familiar topics discussed by CEO Billingsley who founded Mentor with $1,000 and grew that small savings into the leading M&A and Investment public company in the cannabis sector.

Barbie Sommars, Vice-Chair of the Women Grow Chapter, was pleased, “Chet’s presentation was invaluable to our network that ranged from the cannabis curious to the experienced professional.” Founding Chair, Frances Schauwecker, adds, “The fundraising knowledge was just what the doctor ordered.”

The next meeting of the Women Grow Orange County Chapter will cover marijuana growing and will be held on July 7, 2015 at 8:00 pm in the NORML offices at 117 West Fourth Street, in Santa Ana, CA.
