Training is provided by industry-leading experts who bring decades of experience teaching companies to leverage the power of strategic communications to make their businesses stand out in a crowded marketplace.
Upon completing the program, participants will have the opportunity to showcase their companies in front of leading cannabis industry journalists, investors, community advocates and business executives.
The program will begin in March and end in early May. The sessions will be held at multiple locations, including Marino’s midtown Manhattan office. All participants will have the opportunity to present at a High NY produced showcase event in May. Applications are due by February 16, 2020.
The Cannabis Media Lab is currently accepting applications from cannabis companies located in the New York/Tri-State region for our inaugural 2020 cohort. Your chances of being accepted increase when you submit a comprehensive and well thought out application. Companies that apply early have a small advantage (as we have longer to get to know you), so we encourage submitting your application as soon as possible. If you have any questions regarding your application, please reach out to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want to apply, please submit your application online by February 16, 2020.
By March 1, we’ll reach out to the companies that seem most promising for an additional round of phone interviews.
We will select program participants in early March. Sessions begin in late March.
We welcome applications from both cannabis & Hemp/CBD products and services, including ancillary businesses.
The application is open to cannabis businesses at all stages of growth. Priority will be given to startups and early-stage businesses.
Businesses must have at least one member of their executive leadership team working on the business full-time.
All businesses must be legal and in good standing with all relevant government agencies.
Priority will be given to startups, early-stage businesses and businesses run by those who have been disproportionately impacted by the criminalization of cannabis. Please see the “Our Impact” page for more information.
The program lasts from March to May and will take place both online and in our offices in New York City. Applicants must commit to participating in all sessions through the duration of the program.
At the end of the program, we will organize a showcase event in May at which Lab participants will have the opportunity to present their businesses to a carefully selected, invite-only audience of investors and media.
Participants also get access to our extensive networks for advisers, mentors and industry leaders.
