Cann-Expo Launchpad Competition Application Form



Entries for the Cann-Expo Start-Up Launchpad Competition are now OPEN! 


As the Medical Cannabis landscape continues to expand in the wake of recent regulatory changes, the Cann-Expo will provide a global stage for start-up enterprises to compete and pitch their business to a panel of top investors and senior medical cannabis executives from across the entire medical cannabis market.


This year’s judging panel for the Cann-Expo LaunchPad will be led by Matthew Nordgren from Arcadian Fund, Jutta Roth from Kingsley Capital, CannaHub’s CEO Lilac Mandeles and Cobidol’s CEO Richard Skaife.


Getting exposure and obtaining funding is difficult for many organizations, but even more so for start-ups who want to break into the medical cannabis space. Within an already crowded market, The Start-up LaunchPad is a great way for new companies to showcase and promote their innovative business initiatives that will revolutionise the industry. We are looking for companies who are beyond the ‘concept phase’ but have only launched in the last year, and operating with fewer than 10 employees.


Our judges will review the entries and shortlist 15 companies to pitch during the Cann-Expo inaugural event in Athens 21-22nd October 2020. Once all companies have pitched the judges will decide the winner and runner up to be announced during the final coffee break of Day 2.


The winner will receive a complimentary stand at the Cann-Expo 2021, including branding and inclusion in the 2021 marketing campaign.
