Terra Tech CEO, Derek Peterson, Named "Shark" at the Arcview Investor Forum, Las Vegas

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - November 14, 2016) - Terra Tech Corp. (OTCQX: TRTC) ("Terra Tech") or (the "Company"), a vertically integrated cannabis-focused agriculture company, today announced that its Chief Executive Officer, Derek Peterson, has been named one of the Q&A panelist "sharks" at the Arcview Investor Forum, Las Vegas, Nevada on November 15.

The Arcview Angel Investor Network currently consists of over 550 accredited investors in the cannabis sector. Over 133 cannabis companies have raised at least $86 million dollars as a result of their participation in Arcview. Arcview hosts a big in-person pitch event at least every quarter where new entrants in the cannabis market network and share ideas. Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech Corp., has been appointed a "shark" at the November 14-15 event, alongside Jeff Beverly, president and director of Grow Solutions Inc., and Ean Seeb, co-owner and manager of Denver Relief. As experienced and trusted experts in the cannabis industry, they have been chosen to be the event's Q&A panelists to help the investor audience more fully understand the presenting entrepreneurs and their businesses.

Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech, commented, "I'm really looking forward to what should prove to be an enjoyable event attended by a range of industry experts with a deep understanding of the cannabis industry. It is an honor to be asked to be on the Q&A panel. As a 'shark' I'll be listening to companies present and will be grilling them on their business strategies to help the investor audience understand more about the challenges and opportunities they face. With last week's passing of recreational cannabis ballots in California, Nevada and Massachusetts and Maine, and the approval of medical cannabis in Arkansas, Florida, and North Dakota, the cannabis industry is set to grow rapidly. The Arcview Investor Forum, Las Vegas, is one of the largest cannabis investing events in the industry and it's exciting to be asked to be part of it."
