Investing in Minority Founders
We are grateful and excited for our recent partnership with Vertosa, who has helped to curate our latest event within the intersection of culinary and cannabis with a focus on investing in minority cannabis founders.
We will be co-hosting along with Austin Stevenson, Chief Innovation Officer of Vertosa.
Discussions will include: What are the current struggles for minority founders? How can we execute on a call to action to elevate products and ideas for individuals of color? What are creative vehicles that support investments for these founders?
A huge thank you to our panelists:
- Tiffany Yarde, Founder & CEO, SHOKi
- Maggie Connors, Founder & CEO, Besito
- Joyce Cenali, Partner & Chief Operating Officer, Big Rock Partners
