Edibles Business Course

Creating Cannabis CEOs

Edibles Business Course is designed to provide attendees with relevant information, insights and do’s and don’ts from experienced successful edible company owners. Our mission is to give women the knowledge, resources and opportunities to build financially stable businesses within the cannabis and hemp industry. The edibles business courses are small to facilitate more personal education and interaction between instructors and attendees.

Arcview Research estimates the legal cannabis market will soar to nearly $15 billion by 2021, with edibles and ancillary pot-products representing a big part of that boom.

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 business plan templates and states’ edibles licensing requirements with 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.

September date to be announced. Courses are held in downtown Denver.

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