Leaf Forward is partnering with our friends at 48North Cannabis Corp, Canada’s premiere female-focused health and wellness cannabis company, to award five women-led cannabis businesses with a scholarship to the upcoming Leaf Forward Cannabis Startup Bootcamp.
The five 48North Scholarship recipients will learn strategies and tactics to start and grow a business in a strictly regulated and increasingly competitive industry. Entrepreneurs will be taken through a deep dive on proposed cannabis regulations, instructed on business planning, and given a crash course in legal 101. In addition, participants will hear from experts on sales, marketing and brand building and given access to a toolkit designed to raise money from investors. Unlike other cannabis conferences, the Cannabis Startup Bootcamp is built for startups, the class size is small (space is extremely limited), ensuring attendees have meaningful interactions with leaders.
The four-day Cannabis Startup Bootcamp takes place July 20-23 in downtown Toronto. Note that you can register for the bootcamp while scholarship applications are processed. If you are accepted, your bootcamp fee will be fully refunded. Click here to register.
Successful applicants receive:
- One entry to the Leaf Forward Cannabis Startup Bootcamp ($750 value)
- Twelve months free membership in the Leaf Club ($180 value)
- Lessons, advice and mentorship from industry leaders and subject matter experts
- Three strategy sessions with the marketing team at 48North
