Despite a good deal of talk about cannabis equity, I’ve still heard very few success stories about thriving businesses owned by people of color. (In the past I’ve discussed why it’s so hard to get this right.) But several accelerator programs aim to catapult equity businesses to success. News of a couple landed this week:
- It’s now open to applicants from all over the country. Successful applicants participate in a 12-week course and receive a $50,000 grant.
Chicago-based Gromentum LAB is accepting applications for its accelerator program.
