Entrepreneur Media and PRØHBTD have forged an exclusive partnership to identify and salute the entrepreneurs leading the way in the burgeoning cannabis industry. Selected by a private committee of business leaders, these daring individuals and the companies they run will be highlighted in the inaugural “Top 100 Cannabis Leaders” list, which will be featured in Entrepreneur magazine and online at GreenEntrepreneur.com, a new site that will focus on the business, technology and lifestyle aspects of this industry.
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: entrepreneur.com/top100-cannabis-leaders. Deadline for entries is June 15, 2018.
The announcement of the “Top 100 Cannabis Leaders” list acknowledges the rapid emergence, mainstreaming and expected growth of the cannabis industry, which is projected to be worth $75 billion annually by 2030.
The selection process for the list will take into account cannabis entrepreneurs’ innovations in their respective categories, as well as the range of products and services they provide.
“Rarely does a new industry explode with the exponential success that the legal marijuana trade has experienced,” said Bill Shaw, president of Entrepreneur Media. “Entrepreneur is thrilled to be highlighting the pioneers who are leading and shaping this growing multibillion-dollar industry.”
Entrepreneur Media, the leading magazine and online destination for entrepreneurs, and PRØHBTD, the leading creative studio and largest multi-platform video network dedicated to cannabis, have a combined reach of more than 100 million people.
Drake Sutton-Shearer, CEO of PRØHBTD, said, “In order to mainstream cannabis, we need world-class partnerships to help educate decision-makers. By working with Entrepreneur Media, we can shine a light on the most innovative and exciting businesses and leaders among the more than 60,000 companies currently operating in the cannabis industry.”
