Hiring and Firing a Team – OEN Cannabis Business Basics Workshop
Description of the event
Emerge Law Group 805 SW Broadway #2400 Portland, Oregon


Are you a scaling business in the cannabis industry?  Are you looking to connect with experts in the sector who can help you get to the next level?  Do you want to connect with a peer group of other cannabis founders? If so, the Cannabis Business Basics series is for you!

Our Cannabis Business Basics series covers the nuts and bolts of building and scaling a strong business, through the lens of the cannabis industry. Topics will include sales & marketing strategies, fundraising, finance and accounting, HR, legal & compliance, and much more. All instructors are experts in the cannabis industry and have a track record of helping companies succeed.

OEN is committed to helping entrepreneurs learn the skills they need to start and scale their businesses. As we began to support companies in the cannabis industry, our partners, including NuLeaf, and Prosper Portland, among others, echoed the concerns we heard from the entrepreneurs themselves: Historically, cannabis companies have been excluded from traditional business education, putting them at a distinct disadvantage in an already very complicated and challenging industry. Therefore, OEN is partnering with NuLeaf and others to provide extensive business training for companies in the cannabis industry.
