FRANKFURT, Germany, Oct. 18, 2021 – PRESS RELEASE – Bloomwell Group has successfully closed a seed funding round of over $10 million dollarsthe highest publicly known seed investment for a European cannabis company to date. The lead investor is U.S. growth capital provider Measure 8 Venture Partners, specialists in cannabis industry investments. Among other investors, business angel Dr. Reinhard Meier is investing again through his Venture Capital Investors fund; and Philipp Weber of FPS acted as legal adviser to Bloomwell.

Concurrent with the announcement, Bloomwell Group, which includes Algea Care, Europe’s leading telemedicine company for medical cannabis in terms of patient numbers, is repositioning itself as a holding company, allowing it to build, invest or acquire cannabis companies.

« With Bloomwell, we are revolutionizing health care through digitalization and the potential of medical cannabis as well as other natural medicines,” Bloomwell co-founder and CEO Niklas Kouparanis said. “Our portfolio companies will radically focus on a consumer-centric approach along the entire value chain of medical cannabis, with the exception of cultivation. The era of natural-based medicine begins now and Bloomwell is taking the lead. »

Within a year, Bloomwell Group has grown to 160 employees, with projected revenues of 5 million euros in 2021. In addition to Kouparanis, CEO, entreprenuer and cannabis pioneer, the board is strengthened by telemedicine veteran Meier, who as founder, led Teleclinic to an exit, co-founder Samuel Menghistu and Boris Jordan, founding partner of Measure 8 Venture Partners. 

The accomplished board covers facets in medicine, digitalization, cannabis, investment and brand building across various market sectors.

  • Dr. Reinhard Meier, Director of Radiology at Westpfalz Klinikum, previously founded and invested in several medical companies as well as initiating several VC funds.
  • Boris Jordan, with the $285M acquisition of EMMAC, Curaleaf is the first and only multistate operator (MSO) to have a meaningful presence in Europe. Jordan is considered one of the most renowned cannabis experts in North America and has been responsible for the operations of Curaleaf, a global publicly traded cannabis company, as well as venture investments in the cannabis space via Measure 8 Ventures.
  • Niklas Kouparanis, a serial entrepreneur, and a pioneer in the Euopean medical cannabis industry.
  • Samuel Menghistu, spearheading the intersection of banking, investments, M&A transactions and IPOs for over six years.

« Many of the high expectations of both investors and global corporations within the European cannabis industry have not been fulfilled since the enactment of the ‘Cannabis Law’ in March 2017, even though the market has continued to grow steadily, ” Bloomwell co-founder Anna-Sophia Kouparanis said. “With Bloomwell, we have shown within just one year how much can be achieved through entrepreneurial finesse. The nascent European cannabis industry is full of potential for Bloomwell’s future development. While the market is consolidating elsewhere, all signs point towards growth and expansion through the combination of cannabis, innovation, digitalization and a radical D2C or direct-to-patient approach. »

“Germany is the leading European market for medical cannabis and the Bloomwell Group has proven within one year that it can identify and scale innovative solutions in this new growth market for the benefit of patients, ” Jordan said. “Cannabis has a bright future in Europe and we look forward to supporting and working with the Bloomwell Group as they continue to scale. »

« Digitalization is the key to finally putting patients at the center of an inefficient healthcare system,” Meier said. “Algea Care, a portfolio company of Bloomwell, has already proven that it has the expertise and clout to improve the well-being and everyday life of thousands of patients in a highly regulated sector through medical cannabis and digitalization as well as an immensely high service standard. »

Pourquoi une pétition ?

Nous sommes des personnes qui en avons assez de devoir aller dans la rue et avoir affaire à des réseaux criminels sans savoir où cela va nous conduire par après.

Nous sommes des personnes ayant des maladies, qui pour certaines sont rares, et utilisant pour médication le cannabis sous diverses formes (CBD,THC,THCv,CBDa,,,) sous l'accord de notre médecin.

Nous sommes des personnes responsables et honnêtes qui avons une vie épanouie et sans problèmes de vie ou sociaux.

Nous avons également une passion pour la plante de cannabis en elle-même et la cultiver est notre bonheur. De plus, nous pouvons nous soigner avec notre médication sans avoir peur des produits ou autres additifs contenus dans une plante que l'on peut trouver autre part.

Nous souhaitons pouvoir avoir notre médicament dans les normes de la santé publique, car un cannabis sain aide à réduire les frais de santé parfois conséquents pour la collectivité et le malade lui-même.

Nous sommes également des personnes responsables avec un rôle dans la société qui en avons assez d’être considérés comme des « hippies ou autres drogués », nous avons juste choisi notre médication et celle-ci a apporté les preuves de son efficacité dans le monde.

Nous connaissons déjà les produits dérivés comme le CBD et le THC que nous maîtrisons pour nous aider dans notre maladie « Je précise que nous ne sommes pas médecin et que nous nous basons sur 20 ans d’expérience médicale du cannabis des membres de notre ASBL et l'avis du médecin de famille ».

Nous désirons simplement ne plus nous cacher, et pouvoir aider les autres personnes le souhaitant.

Nous somme soucieux des ados et de la prévention à leur égard. Effectivement, nous sommes les acteurs parfaits pour répondre aux questions qu’ils se posent vu notre expérience cannabique et, de plus, nous pourrons leur expliquer les risques qu’ils encourent en achetant du cannabis dans la rue.
