Cannabis Investment Competition: Pitch Deck, New York 2022

Up to $500k in investment for New York Cannabis Entrepreneurs

In conjunction with the opening of our New York office, Canna Advisors is hosting our first business plan and investment competition.

Entrepreneurs interested in entering the cannabis industry across the state of New York have the opportunity to kick-start their company with investment, advice, and consulting services.

The Pitch Deck competition is an open call for cannabis entrepreneurs in New York to submit new business proposals for assessment by a select panel of expert judges, spanning investment and cannabis industry backgrounds. Judges will analyze contestants’ plans based on various factors, including license-preparedness, degree of innovation, and social equity components, among other determined criteria. The top 10 contestants will then be asked to present their plans in webinar format for final assessment, and the selected winners will be given a chance to win between $50,000 and $500,000 in investor funding, as well as $150,000 worth of advisory counsel from the team at Canna Advisors, pending formal due diligence.
