Mentor Capital Now a Delaware Company \\ Public Company Incubator Program Supports Quality Medical Marijuana Spinoffs

SAN DIEGO, Mentor Capital, Inc. (OTCQB: MNTR) announced that its legal move to Delaware is complete. “Our goal was to establish the legal base for completing securities compliant spinoffs of quality cannabis and medical marijuana companies in a cost effective manner,” explains Mentor CEO, Chet Billingsley. “Delaware has a well codified securities and business law system that well supports Mentor’s comprehensive program and is often the choice of domicile for more sophisticated NASDAQ and NYSE companies.” 

Mentor Capital has observed that many cannabis company founders have great businesses, but have not grown to their level of success while rubbing shoulders in an IPO-rich environment like one might find in Silicon Valley or in biotech. As a result, they may be convinced to seek to go public by reverse merger only to lose 10% to 25% of their company to former gold mine shareholders, to be trapped into death spiral financing and to operate without well developed, auditable financial reporting.   

“We’ve designed the Mentor Capital program as a beneficial alternative for all parties that are looking to properly move forward in the growing medical marijuana market,” concludes Billingsley.

About Mentor Capital:  The Company seeks to come alongside and assist medical marijuana and cannabis companies and to assist founders in meeting their objectives, to add protection for investors and to help incubate private cannabis companies.  Additional important information for investors is presented at:  www.MentorCapital.com .
