2020 Yale Business Of Legal Cannabis Conference
The Yale Business of Legal Cannabis Conference was the first of its kind at any U.S. business school. At the inaugural edition of the conference in 2018, we gathered more than 40 speakers with expertise across the sector, including branding and marketing, technology, healthcare, policy, advocacy, entrepreneurship, private equity, venture capital, and sustainable cultivation. Participants enjoyed keynote addresses from Brendan Kennedy, Co-founder of Privateer Holdings, Tahira Rehmatullah, Managing Director of Hypur Ventures and Dr. Chanda Macias, Owner of the National Holistic Healing Center.
2020 THEME: THE CANNA-BOOM: BUILDING BUSINESS AND DEVELOPING POLICY IN UNCHARTED TERRITORIES
The conference will be held on Friday, February 7th at Yale School of Management’s campus in New Haven, Connecticut. The objective of the conference is to convene leaders from all sectors of society – private, government, and nonprofit – to discuss the opportunities and challenges associated with the business of legal cannabis. We expect the conference to attract 300 attendees comprised of MBA candidates, other graduate students, and cannabis professionals.
