Israeli equity crowdsourcing platform OurCrowd is partnering and investing with 7thirty to build a global cannabis technology venture capital fund, the companies said on Wednesday.

The new $30 million fund will be based in Boulder, Colorado and will focus on emerging cannabis technology companies in med-tech, ag-tech, retail, e-commerce and marketplaces.

The fund will be active globally, including in Israel, Canada and the United States.

The 7thirty Opportunity Fund is led by Micah Tapman, a US early-stage cannabis technology investor.
