For Social Equity Licensees
Social equity is at the core of what we do. Many social equity licensees are not only first-time cannabis entrepreneurs, but first-time business owners as well.
No matter what level of experience you have in the industry or in starting or running a business, we are here to help. We are motivated by a desire to make right the injustices of the past, ensure a proper place in the industry for the legacy operators that paved for the way for everyone, and give even social equity licensees that don’t have a ton of funding or industry connections a surer path to success.
