Elliot Lane interviewed Steve Miles, Sharp's Co-Founder & CEO, during the June 2021 Benzinga Capital Conference.

The two discuss whether Steve's advice from February 2021 about limited license states still stands (it does) and what states investors should consider ripe for investment (Missouri) before wending their way through several topics, including: 

  • Vertical integration (our thesis is that if you can be vertically integrated in the market, be vertically integrated)
  • What a mega-retailer could look like and the evolution of retail brand experiences

Elliot and Steve finish the conversation by discussing the future of federalization.
