Our mission is to support efforts that will help create equity in the cannabis industry, and one of the greatest ways we can achieve this goal is by providing educational tools to those seeking them. That’s why we founded our Fluresh Five Accelerator Program in 2021.
As we have continued to understand and adapt to our community’s needs, this program has evolved into the Fluresh Cannabis Entrepreneurship Program. This program puts tools into the hands of those who can be forces for change, while using our resources to create opportunities in our community and industry.
We believe that everyone has the right to opportunities and knowledge in the cannabis industry, which is why we use our resources to elevate and inspire members of our community.
The Fluresh Cannabis Entrepreneurship Program gives community members a nine-month, comprehensive overview of the cannabis industry. Participants benefit from:
• Professional training
• Ongoing technical assistance
• Materials necessary to be a successful cannabis business operator or employee
Graduates of our program have the opportunity to make changes not only for themselves, but for their community and the cannabis industry as well.
We take pride in our graduates and want to highlight their accomplishments! Learn more about some of the amazing people who have graduated from our entrepreneurship program.
• Jessica Austin, the only woman on the West Michigan Cannabis Guild Board and owner of Rich Smoke
• Paul King, M.D., founder of cannabis testing laboratory Hummingbird Labs
• Ciarra Adkins, J.D., founder of the Aqume Foundation—an organization focused on economic justice and racial equity in philanthropy
