Event description

Description

Cannavation is a business meetup, networking event, and educational opportunity that brings together professionals in the cannabis industry. Cannavation does things differently - we are inclusive, not exclusive. Our meetings will expose you to a broad cross-section of experts from various facets of the medical, recreational, and ancillary cannabis industries. Whether you want to know how to 'get in' on the green rush, meet a diverse group of like-minded individuals, or simply expand your knowledge, the Cannavation community is here to help. We're going to talk about ALL of the opportunities available in this exciting industry - not just growing, processing, or running dispensaries.

Each meeting will cover topics such as: business development, industry networking, digital marketing, investing, accounting, brand building, social media, and sales. Cannavation is also a great networking opportunity to meet people in the counter-culture industry.

Speakers:

Luke Gavin is the founder of the CannabisCrew, which, for the past two years has been a leading legal caregiver service in the state of Massachusetts. Over the past five years he has created multiple businesses in the cannabis industry, including two edible companies, a packaging company, and a glass gallery. He is currently working on a new project - a concentrate facility specifically focusing on oils and cartridges.

Luke continues to make patients his priority by providing quality products that are backed by scientific research and free from harmful additives. He will be offering us unique insights into developing a business in this dynamic and ever-changing industry.

Luke graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Business from the Dublin Institute of Technology in 2012.

Hillary King is a consultant, advocate, educator, and evangelist who first came to the cannabis industry in 2013 as a skeptical patient. After experiencing the benefits of cannabis therapy first-hand, Hillary began studying both the plant and the industry as a whole. She soon found herself fielding cannabis-related questions from friends, family, and professional contacts alike, and quickly realized that cannabis is part of her calling. In 2016, a car accident in Costa Rica left her with chronic pain from multiple permanent injuries, but lucky to be alive. Hillary credits medical cannabis with allowing her to manage her symptoms while avoiding the lifetime of opiate pain medication offered by her doctors.

Hillary possesses a wide breadth of cannabis industry experience and knowledge, and is constantly researching and educating herself. With a diverse background in wellness, entrepreneurship, sales, and events, Hillary has pivoted her talents towards the emerging cannabis industry, and recently founded the boutique consulting firm, H. King + Co. Along with a network of industry experts, Hillary offers consulting and advising services for start-ups, businesses, individuals, and investors in the cannabis/hemp industry, as well as those with expertise outside the industry who are seeking to enter emerging markets and understand the cannabis industry. She also offers education for medical providers and wellness professionals, whose patients and clients are increasingly incorporating cannabis into their lives. Additionally, Hillary continues to provide private holistic health services, including medical cannabis consulting, wellness consulting, yoga, meditation, Thai massage/bodywork, & reiki to individuals and groups. www.linkedin.com/in/hbucklin
