Vittorio Cosma

I want to see a change in the world. Constructive, uplifting and sustainable change.
And not just in the world in general, but more specifically in the investment industry. Change that focuses not purely on business needs, but on the needs of the humans that drive those businesses.
I believe that the investment industry needs to change and what better way to do so than from the inside. So, that’s where my passion and skill set comes in.
I help business founders in their quest to attract investment and scale their companies in a people forward, transparent and value-based manner.
I’m a chartered surveyor and retail is my bread and butter but my strength shines through at the inception of projects and business ventures: from proptech to brands, biological sciences and futuristic scenarios.

I was instrumental in launching Kind Love and developing the company’s patient-centric service model. I sold the company in 2014. Over those years I built 5 grow facilities ranging in size from 5,000 to 40,000 sq. ft. I have worked on designing another 15 grow facilities. Bruce is a pioneer and am recognized as one of the leaders in the industry. I consulted with Colorado Senator Chris Roomer in drafting State Bill 1284 – the main MMJ regulatory measure.
