Cannabis-Ancillary Industry Accelerator to Hold Demo DaySunday, June 25, 2017
Canopy San Diego, an accelerator for startups in the legal cannabis ancillary space — those are businesses that don’t work directly with marijuana, but support those who do — will show off its portfolio companies at a demo day on June 28.
The accelerator, a franchise of a Colorado-based business, Canopy Boulder, launched in San Diego in 2016.
Among the startups that will present are:
Verticann, the first turnkey vertical cannabis cultivation system developed for the commercial cannabis industry, which claims to reduce production costs while increasing canopy size when compared with traditional cultivation;
EventHi, the world’s first cannabis ticketing platform through which users may discover events, buy tickets and sponsorships, create cannabis events and meet people with shared interests;
Urban Labs, a lab in a box model for cannabis testing intended to create affordable business opportunities for anyone looking to enter the cannabis industry;
Collectif, is a peer-to-peer marketplace for cannabis-friendly accommodations and cannabis-inspired experiences;
MJ Hybrid Solutions, an online sales training and education platform designed to help develop successful cannabis professionals;
and Traffic Roots, a self-serve ad network for the cannabis space.
The demo event is 6-8:30 p.m. at Fleet Science Center. Learn more at canopysd.com.
