Millennials Start The Hood Incubator To Help Black Weed Peddlers Become Legit
California is predicted to make around $6 billion from the marijuana industry by 2020 but, black ownership in the legal marijuana industry is less than 1%. These statistic are from The Hood Incubator, a company started by 3 black millennials that intend to help grow black ownership in the legal marijuana industry– by helping “underground” weed sellers transition into legal distributors. Co-founders Lanese Martin, Ebele Ifedigbo, and Biseat Horning intend using an education model to prepare unlicensed dealers for success.
“[We] want to take folks who … are already operating in the underground, maybe they already have a whole distribution channel and a whole customer base, but they don’t know the exact licensing”. The trio breaks their program down into 3 areas: support network, funding and industry readiness and participants get over 100 hours of training in 4 months. Who’s ready to sign up??
