Dispensary Business Course

Creating Cannabis CEOs

Opening a Medical or Recreational Dispensary is designed to provide attendees with relevant information, insights and do’s and don’ts from experienced successful dispensary owners. Our mission is to give women the knowledge, resources and opportunities to build financially stable businesses within the cannabis and hemp industry. Classes are small to facilitate more personal education and interaction between instructors and attendees. 

Please Note: Instructors and their respective businesses will  be added by March 1, 2019.

Several companies have agreed to offer scholarships to the Executive Entrepreneur Cannabis Business courses.  It is our goal to have the Scholarship Application page available by March 1, 2018.

The Executive Entrepreneur Cannabis Courses do not cover business basics. There are online resources and templates for business, marketing, and financial plans.  We expect attendees to have begun the process of writing their overall business plan and to be knowledgeable of licensing regulations and legislation for their state, county and state prior to taking the courses.

Please refer to the Business Resources page for links to templates and states’ licensing requirements and links to license applications.

Trade names and incorporation forms can be found on the Secretary of State website for your state.

The Women's Cannabis Chamber of Commerce is serious about Creating Cannabis CEOs.
