Entrepreneur Empowerment Workshop

The Cannabis Cultural Association’s inaugural Entrepreneur Empowerment Workshop will be held in Crown Heights, Brooklyn at the beautiful Electropositive space on Saturday, April 29th. The all-day event will feature a detailed workshop from 1–6pm followed by a networking party from 6–8pm with the CCA board, team and some of our speakers.

“The cannabis industry is a small business industry. We have the opportunity to keep it small and local, without it turning into what we have with the alcohol and tobacco industry. America is looking for a way to bring new and more jobs to our country,” Kristin Jordan, Executive Director of CCA said, “That’s why the Cannabis Cultural Association wants to empower entrepreneurs and small business owners, especially people of color, through this workshop to enter the industry and have the tools they need to thrive.”

The Entrepreneur Empowerment Workshop will provide cannabis small businesses, local merchants, and entrepreneurs with the tools and knowledge necessary to succeed. Speakers include bi-coastal industry business leaders and experts in legal, compliance, finance, marketing, PR, product development and more!
