Red Light Holland Engages Former Canadian Special Operations Forces Officer, Glenn Cowan, Founder of One 9 Investments, to Advisory Board
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - March 5, 2021) - Red Light Holland Corp. (CSE: TRIP) ("Red Light Holland" or the "Company"), an Ontario-based corporation engaged in the production, growth and sale of a premium brand of magic truffles to the legal, recreational market within the Netherlands, is pleased to announce that it has engaged Glenn Cowan, a Veteran of the Canadian Special Operations Forces Command (CANSOFCOM,) to the Red Light Holland Advisory Board joining Chair, Bruce Linton, and a team of talented and experienced Advisors. Cowan is also the founder of One 9 Investments Inc. which he started in 2013 while serving as a Squadron Commander in the Armed Forces. Having operated on multiple combat deployments in Afghanistan, sensitive information operations in the Middle East, and Hostage Recovery operations in Africa, Cowan brings his strategic planning and tactical command experience coupled with his progressive stance for supporting Veterans plus his investment expertise to the Red Light Holland team.
"Having served in Special Operations Forces for most of my adult life, I'm intimately aware of the physical and psychological stressors that our service men and women face on a daily basis and in retirement. When mission planning we prided ourselves on 'out of the box' thinking, and it's time we apply this same creative through process to the manner in which we support our Veterans and society as a whole especially given the increase attention to mental health awareness," said Cowan, Founder of One 9 Investments Inc. "I was introduced to the, in my opinion, positive benefits of psychedelics and microdosing during my own journey of adapting to life after the military and now as a tech investor in venture capital, I've come to appreciate some of the best technological innovation is naturally occurring."
"Adding Glenn Cowan to the Red Light Holland Advisory Board is an honour for the Company. I have the utmost respect for our Armed Forces, past and present, and we appreciate Glenn's transparency and mission in supporting those who have served through his personal investments into their well-being and through his financial investments into companies who produce military technology. We look forward to his expertise and his empathetic and huge heart to continue to help support our Military men and women and our Veterans on all levels," said Todd Shapiro, the Chief Executive Officer and Director of Red Light Holland.
In 2020, Mr. Cowan founded One 9 Venture Partners which invests primarily in dual-use technology companies validated by special operations units and national security intelligence partners including O2 Industries, a Kitchener based respiratory technology company and leading manufacturer of reusable respirators. O2 recently partnered with the UFC®, to provide UFC athletes with respiratory products for every UFC event, and has strong product ambassadors with some of the top fighters in the promotion. One 9 has a global reach and has an extensive network in Canada, the Five-Eyes military communities, Washington DC, Austin TX and Abu Dhabi.
