About Paper Lantern

We build and scale companies that give humanity a brighter future.

Paper Lantern invests in and develops vertically integrated business portfolios in emerging markets, including the hemp, cannabis and blockchain industries. We believe the difference between billion dollar valuations and failure is planning strategically at an ecosystem-level, aligning with market-maker partners, and fostering a culture of innovation built on solid business fundamentals. We build businesses based on regenerative values and a collective intention that all stakeholders thrive. Together we shine a light on a brighter path forward for humanity.

Shifting from the "Me Economy" to  "We Culture"

The world is changing. Leaders of the new economy will emerge through ecosystem-level business models, that bring intentional values-driven go-to-market strategies and foster collective regenerativity.

 

Healthy businesses thrive in healthy ecosystems.

Media & entertainment are shifting humanity's story. Natural wellness is shifting our minds and bodies. Blockchain is shifting finance, technology and governance. All are key components of a healthy global regenerative culture.
