Blazing Beyond Basics: Cannabusiness 2.0

Where there’s smoke, there are buyers. But as cannabusiness has grown from a novelty endcap in a global supermarket of ideas into its own thriving economy, half-baked firms are folding every day. With evolving software platforms and tech support, ever-changing regulatory hoops and hurdles, and myriad industry growing pains, Cannabusiness requires a sound business strategy and eye for detail. Furthermore, it’s high time to build a strategy accounting for today’s opportunities and tomorrow’s unknown challenges. This panel comprises key players spread across cannabusiness, from high-end producers to experienced investors, to help share in-the-weeds best practices and make bold prognostications designed to keep both cannabusiness start-ups and established enterprises from burning out tomorrow.
