TAAT™ CEO Setti Coscarella commented, “Now that we are establishing a presence in our initial market, we have a great story to share with a global audience of investors who may not yet be familiar with TAAT™ and its unique value proposition for smokers aged 21+. The concept of a smokable product with no tobacco or nicotine is very novel, and it has attracted considerable interest from investors in China, whose population of tobacco smokers is approximately eight times the size of Canada’s total population. It has been a pleasure to work with NAI to create a presentation for the GCFF Investing in Innovation event on Thursday, and I am looking forward to sharing our message with an eager and engaged audience of global investors as we continue to gain momentum with the launch of TAAT™ in the United States.”
