New Bedford natives selected as cannabis consultants
NEW BEDFORD — A company run by New Bedford natives has been selected by the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission to train and mentor people who want to get into the legal marijuana business.
The commission chose GreenLight Business Solutions as one of six entities — both nonprofit and for-profit — that will move forward in a procurement process to offer state-funded training as part of the Social Equity Program.
The new program provides pathways into the business for Massachusetts residents who have been disproportionately harmed by marijuana prohibition.
“I really enjoyed how you all presented the materials. Always great when you’re entertained with the videos and learning from your wealth of knowledge and experience. Big take away about knowing the business not only from the business side but from the experience with Cannabis. Thanks so much”
“This was a great class and somehow talking about cannabis delivery service business compliance helped to break my writer’s block and I was able to start writing a business plan.”
“I like how engaging they are and how they allow us to become a piece of the discussion.”
This and the Business Plan Creation course were my favorite courses by far. The information you all have imparted on us is invaluable. Working my way through those two courses have pushed my Business Plan drafts much closer to legitimacy than I would’ve gotten in this span of time on my own. Thank you!”
“Great Job, presenting. I can’t wait to put our business plan in action, once I get the pro forma done. That seems in itself harder than the plan. But it is starting to mirror the plan, I see it in the financial projections, not complete but really cool to be able to get something out of the plan creation. Hopefully someday I will be an example for future cohorts. Thank you.”
“I appreciate GreenLight putting their materials online. Unlimited online access to the materials is very convenient. Materials are very organized and easy to understand.”
“I really appreciated the instructor’s ability to break down the legal component of the course into a way I could understand it.”
“My favorite part of the course was the expertise advice that your instructors offered from their first hand experience working and succeeding in this field.”
“Two thumbs up, don’t change anything.”
“I absolutely enjoyed the course from GreenLight. It was very lively and fun. The course was well-run and didn’t stay on one topic too long.”
“I appreciated GreenLight running through an actual example of a CMR. To see it all broken down was very helpful.”
