How do you get a job in the emerging medical marijuana industry in PA? Follow the lead of some of the earliest winners!
Last summer, in 2016, a handful of pioneers joined the Green Rush Advisors course for Career Seekers and Business Owners. The course was staffed by an 8 year veteran of Colorado’s dispensary industry, a physician with detailed knowledge of the endocannabinoid system, an attorney and a seasoned business entrepreneur. All of the instructional modules were recorded in an online format. The course was supported by in-person sessions.
Following the course, course founder and startup advisor Skip Shuda joined one of his business owner students in attending the 2016 Marijuana Business Expo in Las Vegas. The show was full of PA entrepreneurs planning to apply in early 2017 for a PA Medical Marijuana license. Over 10,000 people attended the show along with Skip and his student. Shortly after that, Skip joined Chamounix Ventures and helped form KeystoneShops (formerly Keystone Dispensaries), one of the highest ranked dispensary permit recipients (Chamounix Ventures/Keystone Dispensaries ranked 8th in the state out of 27 permit recipients). The Dispensary Manager who is an instructor in the Green Rush Advisors course also joined the team along with another Green Rush Advisors student. In all, four participants from the original Green Rush Advisors course are now working on one of the first dispensaries to launch in Pennsylvania.
