CBD Business Courses

Investors, Mergers, Partnerships


Without investors or substantial working capital most businesses will fail in the early stages of development.  Working capital is crucial. It enables a business to move from the planning stages into a striving a company. Money is needed to hire key staff, purchase or manufacture inventory,  website design and management, and for marketing. 

Investors offer more than just financial backing. They come with expertise that can make your business more successful.

Do not confuse: “My business can be successful” for “My business is investable.” 

This course covers:

How to establish a viable business model to present to investor groups, private equity, and venture capital funds. 

Understanding the perspective of cannabis investors and how they view the industry from a macro, and micro perspective. 

Structuring an acquisition or merger, as well as integrated and multinational supply channels.

The Women Cultivating Success CBD-Hemp Business Conference focus is on business education and many valuable connections could be missed. So, we encourage attendees to bring a minimum of 100 business cards for the Chamber’s “Business in a Bag”. We will have a table of small bags set up. Attendee may drop a business card in each bag. During the courses’ break each person picks up a bag of business cards.

Course size is limited to 30. We believe this facilitates a better connection between the information being presented, the instructor and the attendee

You are serious about your business. We are serious about delivering the gold standard of cannabis, cbd, and hemp business education.
