MJBA and NWMJ Law Rollout “MBA Bootcamps” For Portland Cannabis Professionals

OREGON: Beginning on Wednesday, August 17th, 2016 and continuing through January, 2017, leading cannabis industry attorneys NWMJ Law and the Marijuana Business Association (MJBA) will present a series of “MBA Bootcamps” designed to improve the core business competencies of Oregon’s new crop of legal cannabis entrepreneurs.

With offices in Portland’s historic Custom House, NWMJ Law has been on the front lines of the legal cannabis industry from the beginning. The Seattle-based company was instrumental in helping to shape Washington’s regulated cannabis marketplace, and is taking hard-learned lessons to the Oregon market.  “We made it through the initial volatile launching of this industry, nurturing companies in the highly regulated environment.” NWMJ Law’s Anne Van Leynseele told MJ News Network, “Through this unique experience, NWMJ Law discovered that business owners have need to understand more clearly how to operate efficiently and effectively. We put together a team of qualified professionals who will teach you the basics on the wide range of topics you need to be well-versed on how to run a successful and profitable business.”

The company is “paying it forward” by making this essential knowledge available to the industry at large in an effort to establish best practices. Each session will be two hours, and include short presentations with supporting materials, real world examples, and audience questions.  A handout with key learnings will be distributed to all attendees.
