ELEVATE Northeast Social Equity Fund Pitch Competition Finals and Networking

December 1, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm

ELEVATE Northeast Social Equity Fund Pitch Competition

Don’t miss Massachusetts’ most exciting cannabis event of the year!

Join us in Worcester on Thursday, December 1 for a fast-paced, live pitch event where the audience can vote for their favorite finalists, network with applicants and business leaders, and celebrate the winners!

Whether paying for services from architects, lawyers, and accountants, or expenses like rent, security, and insurance, launching a cannabis business in Massachusetts is expensive and complex. As we collectively wait for the Commonwealth’s taxpayer-funded social equity fund, ELEVATE Northeast has raised $200,000 from which multiple winners will receive 5-figure grants, no strings attached, at the live awards ceremony

Event agenda*

5:00 – 6:00 – Registration and networking

6:00 – 7:30 – Live pitch presentations from up to 10 finalists

7:30 – 8:00 – Networking, jury deliberation, and live audience voting

8:00 – Winners announced (and big checks awarded!)

8:30- Event ends

Thank you to presenting sponsor Northeast Alternatives for helping to make this event possible!
