The Cannabusiness Development – 2017 Summer Workshops is a project of Karen Byars founder of the Mendocino Cannabis Resource LLC. With over 25 years of experience in grassroots organizing for Cannabis legalization Karen & MCR bring together a line-up of presenters that will be inspirational and informative, all experts in their field. Currently cannabis companies that work directly with the cannabis plant cannot receive support from their cities/counties Small Business Development (SBD) centers because they receive federal funds. MCR, with the support of the workshops sponsor, Flow Kana, has organized SBD workshops to guarantee that cannabis cultivators, medicine makers and manufacturers have the business foundation they will need to survive the challenges of the rapidly developing cannabis industry.
The workshops are for anyone applying for a cannabis permit or their team members,
& those who are interested in working with licensed cannabis providers.
