Monday, September 21st Greenhouse Ventures (GHV) – a business accelerator driving ancillary startups in the cannabis and hemp industries – launched its pilot semester with three ancillary startups. Located in Philadelphia, PA, GHV is working to bring best practices in the cannabis industry from the West Coast to the East.
GHV will be hosting its first Demo Day in Philadelphia on December 5th, where it will be introducing ventures working in the financial tech, e-commerce/ad tech, and B2C sales verticals. On this day, GHV companies will have the opportunity to publicly exhibit their products/services to the general public as well as privately pitch a room of Angel and VC investors.
With the cannabis industry booming in states like Colorado, Washington, California, and Oregon the opportunity to bring Cannabiz to the East Coast is more possible than ever. GHV is poised to be an industry leader.
“We at GHV are bringing best practices while aligning ourselves with the most talented and reputable firms in the industry. We have identified knowledge, talent and capital gaps in the cannabis industry. We are excited to be a part of the solution, along with the experts on our mentor board, in helping to establish best practices for the blossoming east coast market.” – GHV Founder, Tyler Dautrich
