LOS ANGELES, Nov. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Entrepreneur Media is excited to announce the creation of the Green 400, their first annual ranking of companies that are making the largest impact in the North American cannabis industry.
Entrepreneur Media is working exclusively in partnership with PRØHBTD, the premier brand and media platform with the largest multi-platform cannabis-dedicated video network, to select these industry leaders. Broken into 20 categories, the Green 400 will honor innovators, investors and entrepreneurs in this multifaceted, ever-expanding space. The inaugural list will be revealed in 2019.
Anyone with knowledge of the cannabis industry is invited to nominate their favorite entrepreneurs and companies for inclusion on the list. The entry form can be found at https://www.greenentrepreneur.com/green400/submit. Deadline for entries is February 15, 2019.
Green 400 awardees will be honored at Green Entrepreneur’s Green 400 event that will take place in California in May 2019. Hundreds of industry trailblazers, aspiring entrepreneurs and passionate consumers will come together to share their experiences, identify the latest trends and discuss the future of the cannabis market in the U.S. and beyond.
“The passion we’re seeing from entrepreneurs in cannabis is incredible,” says Entrepreneur President Bill Shaw. “There’s no roadmap here — you need to be fearless and able to see around corners to successfully navigate the tricky legal and financial waters of this industry. And that’s what this program is celebrating.”
“The North American business community is leading the global effort to mainstream cannabis,” says Drake Sutton-Shearer, CEO of PRØHBTD. “As that effort rapidly gains momentum, Entrepreneur and PRØHBTD are proud to extend our exclusive partnership to provide a platform where companies and leaders will be spotlighted and celebrated.”
