Entrepreneurship in cannabis presents unique legal, practical, and business challenges—both here in Colorado and, increasingly, around the country. Colorado Law Executive Education, in concert with the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado Boulder, presents the Cannabis Entrepreneurship Academy: a four-day, continuing education program that will tackle some of the latest legal and business issues cannabis entrepreneurs face. Topics include:

  • Leadership
  • State regulation and enforcement

  • Regulatory regimes
  • Market research, data analytics, and marketing strategies
  • Comparative perspectives from other states and countries
  • Social and ethical issues related to cannabis

Students receive startup and advanced business advice from experienced cannabis entrepreneurs and other industry experts.
