As cannabis legalization continues, Momentum is here to foster unique brands, support affected communities with greater revenue, and ultimately secure a more diverse cannabis culture. Because more voices, more perspectives, and more vibrancy will create a better industry for all.
Momentum participants receive a $50,000 grant to help them navigate the high costs of doing business and lay a strong foundation for future success. They then participate in 12 weeks of industry expertise curriculum, where they receive mentorship from industry leaders, practical tools to manage and expand business, training in compliance best practices, and more. This helps build and expand their relationships with like-minded founders, executives, investors, and industry leaders working to transform cannabis. From day 1 to the final pitch day event, Momentum provides valuable opportunities for founders to rapidly expand their network, laying the foundation for even greater future success.
