It's a new year, a new decade and a perfect opportunity to create new businesses successes! Join us for this discussion and workshop on starting an ancillary cannabis business as a woman of color entrepreneur. An ancillary cannabis business is one that helps support the cannabis industry and its consumers without actually touching the cannabis plant itself.

When we think of the cannabis industry, most people immediately think of dispensaries, edible companies, or concentrate manufacturers, but these businesses take up only a small fraction of cannabis business types. In fact, most cannabis businesses fall under the category of ancillary cannabis business and include consulting, marketing, accounting, investing, security and human resources just to name a few. While the legal cannabis market is projected to bring in billions of dollars, ancillary businesses are projected to be even greater! As a woman of color, this is a perfect opportunity to start, expand or transition your carrier into this multi-billion dollar industry!
