MIAMI BEACH, Fla., April 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bang Holdings Corp. (OTC Pink:BXNG), a digital advertising company that provides content and its influencer-based marketing network to the legal cannabis industry, today announced that a player in the National Football League has invested $200,000 in the Company. The player’s name is not being disclosed for privacy reasons.
High performance professional athletes, A-list entertainers and top-tier celebrities live and invest in a rarefied world of big money and world-class financial advisors and managers. As a result, they routinely have the inside track to the world’s best investment opportunities, typically well before such investments have appreciated and become widely known or mainstream.
Bang Holdings believes the explosive growth in the $6 billion legal cannabis industry creates an exceptional opportunity when combined with its highly scalable business model for dominating the massive advertising void created by Google, Yahoo and others, whose restrictive advertising policies reject cannabis-related companies.
Bang Founder, Chairman and CEO, Steve Berke – himself a former professional tennis player – is excited by the talent his company is attracting.
“With three Yale alumni as Officers and Board members of Bang, we understand the commitment, talent and discipline required for high performance,” Berke said. “That’s why Bang is delighted to welcome a professional NFL athlete to our all-star team. And, based on our ongoing discussions, we expect additional top-tier talent to join us in the months ahead.”
