THE BIG IDEA

Hi all,

You may have noticed WeedWeek‘s pub date slipping around a bit recently. This owes to a few factors, but one is a tech overhaul that’s now almost done. I’ll be off for the holiday and the newsletter will return on Thursday, December 1. After that, Thursday will be the target pub date every week. 

In the newsletter:

  • Weed’s free speech wars

I’m thankful for your ongoing interest and support. Have a great one.

Alex

SCOOP: Eaze spins off Momentum equity program

Delivery app Eaze has spun off the Momentum equity program, an accelerator it started for equity entrepreneurs. Over three cohorts it gave 30 businesses $50,000 (non-equity)  grants each.

Jennifer Lujan who started the program at Eaze and will continue running it outside the company are still in business. While the structure of the next cohort and the sources of funding remain up in the air, Lujan said she hoped to have another cohort next year. 

  • Eaze will continue providing an unspecified amount of financial support. It will also give the startups space on the app’s social equity menu.

Lujan said the new organization is exploring companies, governments and other funding sources.
