Equity At The Helm
Do you run a cannabis company but don’t have a marketing budget that would allow participation in an event of this magnitude?
At Benzinga, we understand that costs can be prohibitive for many companies in the space. We’ve launched a series of scholarships in partnership with WomenGrow, Minorities for Medical Marijuana and BIPOCANN to enable and support access for women and minority-owned businesses.
We’re also offering social equity passes for those who qualify to attend, and have committed to donating a percentage of all event ticket sales to organizations that support cannabis reform.
