CBD/Cannabis Start Up Accelerator

From GBP 30.00



Feb 27 2019 14:00 - 18:00


CBD and medical cannabis are a rapidly expanding industry, with consumer demand growing exponentially. CBD oil is used in cooking, mixing cocktails, vaping, and as pain and anxiety relief by athletes and consumers alike. It is a space ready for innovation.  Yet informative and educational CBD and Cannabis events are still rare and the legal landscape, business practises and opportunities are fast evolving. This is why we are organising the UK’s first one day accelerator program for startups, young brands, investors and representatives from retailers and corporations to meet, learn and facilitate business deals.

The “Cannabis and CBD Startup Accelerator’ will take place in the afternoon at NewSpeak House on Bethnal Green Road. The programme is structured around education, engagement and insight, encompassing legal advice on CBD and medical cannabis ranging from ‘how to buy and source legal, high quality CBD’ and ‘what health claims can be made’ to ‘consumer insight and trends in regards to CBD’. Participants will meet investors, industry players, start ups, legal professionals and other cannabis innovators.
