HIGHER ADVISORS is a talent agency for Cannabis + Psychedelics leaders. We represent innovators from business, science and culture, and match them with highly qualified entrepreneurs and companies seeking co-founders and C-suite execs.
We source and evaluate US opportunities for our international clients and support dealmaking. We also work with US clients seeking entry to the California market. Our ability to deliver these services are a result of expertise and relationships developed over a decade working in the California cannabis business.
California & USA
We are leading experts on the highly advanced Israeli cannabis industry, with senior level relationships in all areas of the ecosystem, including research, medicine, technology, cultivation, and finance. As early movers in the Israeli market, we have a unique understanding of who are the most credible and trustworthy companies and professionals in the country.
Initially focused in Germany and the UK, we represent and support the interests of our clients in Europe, via our trusted partner network there. We source and qualify European opportunities for our clients, and provide them on the ground presence.
Research & Business
SERVE provides qualitative industry research and business intelligence gathering for our clients, utilizing one on one interviews, focus groups and online communities; as well as sourcing, reviewing and analyzing existing data related to the client's research needs.
The only way to acquire real knowledge about the nascent business of cannabis and psychedelics is to go out and collect it at the source, from the people building the industry. We came up in a time when knowledge was harder to come by, before Linkedin users started self-identifying (and self-incriminating) with cannabis. But we traveled and we met and we learned. And we found extraordinarily knowledgeable and trustworthy people, and built relationships with them.
Time is the real teacher, and there is no substitute for putting in the countless hours it takes to become an expert in anything. And cannabis expertise is even more difficult to attain, as we had to learn and practice our trade while its still considered a criminal enterprise in much of the world. It's that level of hard won experience and perseverance that we call upon when undertaking international missions on behalf of our clients.
Our international network has been built by hand, one person and company at a time. And these are aligned and activated relationships, tested and true, with trust earned over time. This also means that along the way we had to say no to more people than we said yes to. And that's because our criteria is high and goes beyond business, as we only work with people we admire. This is why we can confidently recommend any of our international network partners to our clients.
