Meet Canopy: A Cannabis Business Accelerator – May 17 2017
Canopy is a business accelerator for cannabis startups in Boulder, CO. They also run a bi-weekly cannabis-entrepreneurship MeetUp, where the aim is to bring the cannabis community together to facilitate networking and progression of this startup-driven industry.
They have helped 64 cannabis-ancillary companies launch their businesses since 2015, and they have raised over $20M in capital. Canapy’s portfolio includes cannabis industry luminaries such as BDS Analytics, Stashlogix, Würk, Front Range Biosciences, Stashbox, and other marijuana industry startups that are quickly growing into industry powerhouses. There’s incredible opportunity for businesses that support the industry’s infrastructure, including tech, software, analytics, innovative accessories, and retail solutions. The cannabis industry is obviously a complicated environment in which to get launched and funded, and Canopy wants to answer the group’s questions surrounding that. This month we are having a joint meet-up with Canopy at Duffy’s Irish Pub.
Please come join us!
