Newark, New Jersey, September 21, 2023 –Gary George, Co-Founder of The Real Cannabis Entrepreneur Conference, partnered with the Mainvest crowdfunding platform to fund entrepreneurs who will compete in the event’s SparkTank® competition on October 5, 2023. The news of this partnership is monumental because most banks will not finance a cannabis-related business, given the high risk that it’s not federally legal.
Starting a business in the cannabis industry is extremely expensive and cost-prohibitive for the average person. With funding all but drying up this past year in the cannabis industry, most entrepreneurs don’t have the means to finance a business.
The SparkTank® Competition will feature live crowdfunding through the Mainvest app, allowing the audience to invest on the spot during the entrepreneur’s pitch session. Examples of the rockstar startups participating is Tundra Beverages, an Alaskan company founded by a couple from the Iñupiat tribe. Allstar Dispensary, cannabis retail, social equity applicants out of Newark, NJ and more.
