MIT Education Forum: Cannabis Technology 

Registration is here: https://www.mitforumcambridge.org/event/opportunities-in-cannabis-technology/

MITEF invites you back to continue the dialogue on the current and future state of Cannabis technology and your place in it. Once again we have brought together an exciting spectrum of cannabis cognoscenti from across business, community, academia, and technology to offer a range of views, insights, and opinions for how best to face the brave new world of legalized cannabis.

Our panelists will address:

What problems and opportunities exist in the Cannabis industry and how can we mobilize entrepreneurs to get involved in both?

What is the role of the innovation ecosystem in helping cannabis entrepreneurs? How are you a part of this ecosystem?

What have we learnt about Cannabis in the recent past and fast coming future?

Are recreational and medicinal two separate things? Where are the connections and opportunities?

How can we use quantitative data to improve the qualitative experience?

How can technology help the cannabis industry grow without limitation?

What technologies and tools can be used to improve cultivation?

We look forward to your participation. There will be a discussion from the panel, followed by Q&A, followed by an opportunity to meet the local organizations pushing the threshold of technology at the 4th-floor bar!
