Jon talks with Rana Vig – President & CEO Blue Lagoon Resources. Blue Lagoon Resources is a mineral exploration company focused on the acquisition, exploration and development of properties for the mining of gold and other minerals.
Rana is a seasoned entrepreneurial professional with five successful start-ups in different verticals and a diverse 35-year business career under his belt.
Having transitioned to the capital markets in 2010, Rana took two companies public, and these were the biggest Canadian venture deals of 2018. Curaleaf raised $520 million and was a near billion reverse takeover (RTO). While Harvest Health and Recreation was yet another impressive billion RTO, Rana also took Blue Lagoon Resources, the gold-focused company of which he is the current CEO and which had one of the top-performing stocks for 2019, public in the following year.
Outside of business, Rana is a well-known philanthropist. In November 2017, the Canadian Senate invited him to receive the Senate 150th Anniversary Medal for those who make their communities a better place to live through generosity and dedication.
