I cannot tell you how important Women Grow has been to my marketing agency, Refined Bud. Women Grow gave us the opportunity to have a space within the industry to talk openly and honestly about women’s role within cannabis.  In a lot of other industries, competition trumps collaboration, but the mentoring and connections that Women Grow facilitate and encourage jumpstarts businesses and brands at whatever level they may be entering the industry. For example, Refined Bud was just a twinkle in my eye before I started attending the monthly events. Shortly thereafter, I had my first client, another Women Grow member. By offering scholarships to women in the industry to attend CWCB Expo, they gave 200 women the chance to cultivate relationships and learn from industry insiders. The best of the best. This rarely happens in other industries and if it does happen it is rarely on this large of a scale.  It’s been a true honor working alongside the Women Grow team, learning from their experience and expertise, but also being able to be part of their successes. They make each member whether they have only attended a single event, to a founding member feel like they belong in this space.  Regardless of where you begin in the industry — Women Grow grow has a place for you. Women Grow is a launching pad for any women interested in finding their fit within the budding industry.  I’m incredibly grateful to the Women Grow team for recognizing the importance of supporting women entrepreneurs. They’ve given me, and so many others the chance to grow and thrive in this industry — an industry that very few women dare enter a decade ago. Linsey Pecikonis

CEO, Refined Bud

Women Grow was the best investment I made last year–professionally and personally. I have multiple new clients from WG and even have several new contacts from the recently launched directory. The monthly Signature events are a stellar opportunity to connect with industry representatives, colleagues, clients and prospective clients — and to see old friends and meet new ones.  The Bay Area chapter Signature events have been rich in bringing industry veterans in as speakers to inspire those entering the business, as well as those experienced in the cannabis sector.

Women Grow has provided a well vetted and reliable network of businesses and entrepreneurs to support whatever may come up for us in the cannabis industry. As the conversation towards legalization shifts from an underground culture to an industry of budding professionals, organizations like Women Grow play a critical role in supporting a powerful and creative industry in problem solving and troubleshooting through the national paradigm shift around cannabis. Personally, I have found the support of other women in the cannabis industry to be necessary in not only keeping the legalization conversation moving forward but to demonstrate a new way in which industry can grow with women at the helm of being some of the most powerful leaders. Who women are in cannabis industry is unlike any out there and Women Grow provides the support needed to keep that thriving. Nicole Kennebeck

Manager, Compassionate Pain Management

Being a part of Women Grow has been a very positive experience for the growth of my business and for me personally as well. When in Washington with the lobby days Women Grow organized, I got to meet one of the top executives of one of the largest dispensary chains in Colorado. We connected right away and as a result of that meeting her company picked up my line, and now carry it in all seven of their stores. On a personal note I have found that the women in this industry are smart, creative, courageous, and super fun to be around, and WomenGrow is a great way to meet lots of them.  I have certainly made some life long friends as a result of WG.
