GROWING TALENT IS A RESULTS-DRIVEN COMPANY FOR AN EQUITABLE CANNABIS MARKETPLACE
Growing Talent's proprietary technology has facilitated over 30,000 deliveries for over 5,000 customers helping its retail partner, Good Tree, generate $200K in monthly recurring revenue totaling over $3.5 million in sales since 2018.
Now, it's time to help people of color become owners in an industry that has once imprisoned us disproportionately due to the war on drugs.
As seen in...
"Great social impact and big market opportunity to build a large business around it."
"I believe the legalization of marijuana will come to all 50 states and want to get in on the ground level as far as investing. I also want to support black businesses that are focused on uplifting the black community."
WHY GROWING TALENT EXISTS
The cannabis industry is booming but many businesses are struggling due to poor infrastructure. Moreover, dispensaries owned by people of color are failing to launch in areas where cannabis markets are legal and lucrative due to a lack of resources such as capital, real estate, and technology. Less than 1 in 5 of dispensary owners are people of color.
As more and more states adopt legalization, there is a huge opportunity to cultivate and train entrepreneurs of color, especially those affected by the war on drugs, so they can begin to sell, manage, analyze, and expand their businesses under a nationally recognized brand.
World-Class, Professionally Managed Cannabis Dispensaries
Growing Talent’s equity incubator is a turnkey solution to starting a Good Tree dispensary driven by a state of the art operating system. Its intensive training and software guide minority business owners through the entire process from concept to opening their doors similar to franchising opportunities by America’s most successful companies including Chick-fil-A, Edward Jones, and McDonald’s.
Equity partners become proficient in Growing Talent's operating system deemed “Systems as a Service” which is highly competitive with other cannabis SaaS platforms in that we provide a single solution for various business operations and compliance workflows while others only focus on one or the other.
"I believe that this is a long overdue necessity for the cannabis market. I advocated legalizing cannabis sales years ago for both reasons of safety and financially And now you brilliant folks have added the final piece."
"I invested because this is a great opportunity for minorities to be part of a growing business."
