NCIA’s Catalyst Conversations Series is a brand new advanced webinar series curated to give enrollees in our Social Equity Scholarship program the opportunity to network and gain access to valuable knowledge that will help them excel in the cannabis industry.

In this edition of our Catalyst Conversations series originally aired on Tuesday, October 6 we featured some of the smartest minds in cannabis research and analytics, to share their insights on the US and global cannabis markets and how businesses can use data to their advantage.

Having access to accurate information is critical to success as an operator in the cannabis industry. Panelists will share data specific to states with social equity programs in existing and potential markets around the country.

This webinar will explore:
• What is the most important data that social equity owners and operators need to grow their business?
• How can cannabis business owners respond to the massive changes in consumer purchasing behavior due to COVID-19?
• What is the disparity of ownership and employment and arrests for cannabis between racial and ethnic groups?

Panelists:
Tahir Johnson, NCIA (Moderator)

John Kagia, New Frontier Data

David Abernathy, The Arcview Group

Jocelyn Sheltraw, Headset

Maya Jasmin, BDSA
