Tonight, the New Jersey Cannabis Symposium will hold its second major event at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark. The event aims to bring together cannabis professionals and enthusiasts as well as businesses and entrepreneurs who plan to work within NJ’s adult-use cannabis industry.
The highly anticipated event is focused on helping to gain an understanding of financial and investment principals, equipping business owners with the information they need to make informed decisions for their cannabis businesses. New Jersey is expected to be an especially challenging environment as this new industry emerges into the mainstream.
“To succeed in the cannabis business, it is imperative that owners, partners, and investors do their homework and surround themselves with qualified cannabis professionals who understand the nuances and caveats of operating in this emerging industry. The panel conversations will provide that base information,” says Gary B. Rosen, NJCS Co-host.
According to the event organizers, the session is expected to be informative and beneficial for cannabis professionals that are “seeking individuals or groups looking to deploy capital, cannabis teams seeking investment, operators looking to properly structure their companies, and master networkers within the space who are looking to be connectors.”
Keith Stroup, founder of National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), will address the audience on the current state of industry affairs. Will Stoup have a special announcement to share with the legal cannabis community during his spotlight moment? Find out tonight.
Additionally, there are many other panelists who will grace the stage and provide insight to working within the financial constraints requirements of the industry.
