What is the cost to attend?

The conference is Free.  Free-ninety-nine.

Who should apply to attend?

Entrepreneurs and startups in the cannabis industry.  If you are on the journey of turning your idea into reality, we want you to apply to attend the CanopyBoulder JumpStart Conference.

What is the objective of the conference?

 We believe strongly that the first step to building a healthy ecosystem of entrepreneurship is to share knowledge and experience.  That’s why the Canopy JumpStart Conference is free - because we want to share our knowledge and connections with entrepreneurs who will build this amazing industry.  

How does registration work?

Step 1: Request an invitation via the form on this page

Step 2: We will review your request and issue rolling invitations to the most promising and talented entrepreneurs in the cannabis industry until we hit max capacity for the Cultivated Synergy space - about 150 attendees.  

Step 3: Show up at 1pm ready for a full afternoon

Will food be served?

We'll have snacks after the conference and before Demo Day, so make sure your blood sugar is in a good place when you arrive.

Is consumption allowed?

This is a business conference, not a dab fest.  Look, we love the herb, but there is a time and a place for it.  As we say at CanopyBoulder, at no point should you be intoxicated during the program.  If you disagree, that is ok too, just let us know.  Thanks.

Thanks again to our sponsors!
