Our next guest speaker is Tyler Dautrich. We are very excited about Tyler coming to visit our group since many of you have been asking for help with your own start-up cannabis business ideas.
Tyler is the Co-Founder of Greenhouse Ventures – a business accelerator specific for ancillary startups in the cannabis and industrial hemp industry. ( http://greenhouse.ventures/ )
About Greenhouse Ventures:
Greenhouse Ventures LLC is a business accelerator specific to ancillary startups in the cannabis industry. Our mission is to assist in building a successful and sustainable cannabis industry by accelerating the growth of startups that service the industry. Ancillary startups seeking up to $2,000,000 in seed or growth capital are accepted into the accelerator program. Ancillary product and services that are accepted include, but are not limited to: software, technology, hydroponics, growing equipment, paraphernalia, and packaging.
Greenhouse Ventures selectively seeks entrepreneurs who have a track record of success, a great idea, and an executable strategy. We bring to the table a network of industry experts, serial entrepreneurs, angel investors, and an average of $60,000 in professional services during the course of a typical engagement. Entrepreneurs that are accepted into an accelerator are positioned to enter a new brand into the marketplace and to raise their first round of capital within 12 months after Demo Day. Greenhouse Ventures takes an average of 5% equity in each venture in the form of non-voting common stock.
