Ep. 207 - Launching Fund in the Midst of Uncertainty and Cannabis Special Situations with Shawn Badlani, Founder and CIO of Honest Capital LLC

December 29, 2021

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Shawn Badlani. He is the Founder and CIO of Honest Capital LLC, and we were introduced by recent pod guest, David Polansky from Immersion Investments (Thank you, David!). Shawn was featured in Reuters in January 2021 for Honest Capital's outperformance and bets placed since launching his fund in May 2020, an incredible story on its own. We discuss starting a fund in the midst of all the uncertainty, and why he placed his bets on Cannabis.
