2018 was a landmark year for the cannabis industry: California, Vermont, Oklahoma, Canada, and Mexico all deregulated marijuana, making it more widely accessible.
With deregulation, entrepreneurs and investors have made the cannabis space a hotbed of innovation, attracting the attention of press, lawmakers, investors, and consumers. Global funding to cannabis companies reached nearly $2.2B (a new record high for this emerging industry).
On June 26th, 4 of these frontier entrepreneurs will join us to discuss what inspired them, how they determined the right business model and how they've grown their business thus far. We'll also hear about the unique challenges of the space, from legal and regulatory complexities to the residual stigma of cannabis.
