I also have a MBA in finance and marketing from the leading Australian Graduate School of Management, UNSW-- gives me a clear understanding of the complex Cannabis and CBD business involved funding in Cannabis start ups and also funding for operations post licensing.

One of my main contributions in Cannabis start ups is savings in capital expenditure during the build out phase for the initial licensee and funding post licensing.

Most of my clients start the process with an Business Plan to assist raising finance. However, I can enter the project at almost any stage and offer a high level advices on finance and legal compliance.

Will always strive for the highest quality customer service with contributions from our  experienced and highly qualified team of subject matter experts, from security, HVAC, sales licenses, and amendments.

What Our Clients Say About Us

Tyler Tetrault

Owner / Master Grower at Rocky Mountain Cannabis

In the exciting “Green Rush” that is currently taking place in the cannabis market, there is no shortage of so-called “Professional Consultants” lining up to tell you what you want to hear; & offering their expert experience at up to $100,000 in fees. When I met Nigel from Growth West, it was clear to me that I was speaking with someone with a high degree of professionalism, as well as credentials. Most importantly, I felt like I could trust him. My goal was to be one of the first licenced micro cultivators & we got to work on my file. My application was filed on October 17, 2018, & I received my “COR” on March 27, 2019. I am one of 8 to have received my “COR” & Nigel was instrumental in this accomplishment. I highly recommend Nigel & his team at Growth West, if you are serious about seizing this opportunity.
