We're joined by a very special guest, Philip Schetter, CEO of Cantourage, who will share insights into how this burgeoning company is revolutionizing the cannabis market. Cantourage, now a proud member of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange family, is on the lookout for fresh talent across Berlin, Bavaria, and Europe to support its growth. In our conversation, Philip will uncover the important shift in Germany's medical cannabis regulation - no longer seen as a narcotic, but now recognized as prescription medicine - and discuss the nuances of a cautious approach towards the potential legalization of recreational use. We'll explore the sophisticated mechanisms Cantourage employs to produce high-quality medicines right from their hub in Bavaria, using innovative methods to ensure purity and efficacy, shunning the traditional irradiation techniques. Ever wondered how pharmacies might navigate the complex world of medical cannabis ordering? Cantourage has the answer with their cutting-edge, fully digitized platform, designed to streamline the wholesale process. With a commanding presence across multiple product formats, Cantourage claims a substantial share of the medical cannabis market. Philip's path to CEO of Cantourage is as intriguing as the industry itself, involving a history of cultivating success at another business giant, Aurora Deutschland GmbH. Listeners with an ear for financial strategy will find Philip's insights into going public particularly riveting. We'll delve into how this move not only adds a layer of complexity but also elevates the company's professional and transparent stance - factors that are increasingly attracting the sharp eyes of institutional investors. Despite the buzz and speculation around recreational cannabis, Cantourage stands firm in its focus on the medical market, citing significant prospects for growth.

Tune in to the latest episode of our podcast, where we discuss the top news and trends in German, Swiss, and Austrian (GSA) startups. From European unicorns to emerging tech companies, we cover it all in this monthly show. Don't miss out on the latest tech news and startup updates! Our Highlights:Joe already did a 2023 review focused on valuations and investments. All publications more or less agreed that 2023 was hopefully rock bottom for startups, their valuation, funding and founding of new ones and it should get better. Thumbs pressed for that (as is German custom). Our former guest Finn raises 100 M€, unicorn 1Komma5 Grad is looking for 100 M€, Unzer loss amounts to 400 M€ and Everphone raises 270 M€. Despite the dire situation, almost 2,500 new startups were founded in Germany. Also one should take notice of Karlsruhe, a city with a world-class technical university, that is home to INTERATEC which raised 118 M€ for efuels. Please, take a moment and match again all the bad news we have gathered here and weigh it against entrepreneurs sticking their heads out and even raising hundreds of millions from investors.

WeFox is an online insurance broker and it did not raise equity, so their valuation stayed the same. Sono Motors May Have Found An Investor Sono Motors was once hailed as a new hope for the German startup scene, listing early in the US in November 2021. The company wanted to increase the reach of electro-cars by adding solar cells but ran into many problems while developing electro-cars. In the end, they had to file for insolvency but are now restarting with tech that allows the retrofitting of solar panels for fossil fuel busses. Sono Motors filed a 6-K form with the SEC saying that the company secured its survival for 2024, apparently most of the 250 employees can find further employment.
