Social Community, Directory and Business Accelerator for Innovation
January 23, 2018 – Grand Haven, Michigan – Today Cannabiz Connection announced the Michigan launch of its all-in-one platform for building a successful business in the cannabis industry. Cannabiz Connection serves as a social community, a directory and a business accelerator for cannabis startups, consultants and existing businesses.
Cannabiz Connection is created by Jamie Cooper, the first cannabis entrepreneur to be named one of the 50 Most Influential Women in West Michigan by the Grand Rapids Business Journal in 2018.
“I created the all-in-one Cannabiz Connection platform to help people learn, grow and build successful cannabis careers,” said Jamie Cooper, founder and CEO, Cannabiz Connection. “ The first order of business for any startup is to connect with the people who are already doing business in the industry.”
Cooper added, “This month, we are launching in Michigan, and with the phenomenal growth of the regulated cannabis industry, we intend to branch into several others states by year’s end.”
Michigan passed a set of bills implementing a new regulatory program for medical marijuana businesses in September 2016. Currently, 30 States and the District of Columbia passed laws decriminalizing – or legalizing – the use of cannabis for either medical or recreational purposes. (http://cnw.fm/fV6lj).
