Sarah McGarrell Panelist at Babson Global Entrepreneurship Program: Marijuana and the Entrepreneur: Participating in a High-Growth Industry

It’s not too often that a new industry springs up seemingly overnight, but that is increasingly the case for cannabis as more and more states create regulatory environments in which consumers can purchase and consume marijuana. And this industry is not just about growing and smoking pot: join us for a panel discussion where we will explore the risks and rewards for investors, growers, and service providers.  This is a significant industry in which both traditional and disruptive companies can participate by engaging in some creative thinking. By understanding the ins and outs of the cannabis industry, entrepreneurs can develop strategies for gaining access to this high-growth, high-margin market without rewriting their entire business plan.
