Last month I attended my first ever Women Grow event. The event was held by the Portland, Oregon chapter of Women Grow, which is the fastest growing chapter for the organization in the entire country. The event was packed with entrepreneurs and the vibe at the event was nothing short of electric. I met people that own dispensaries, own edible companies, own branding companies, event planning companies, and several other types of businesses that are dedicated to cannabis. Never before had I attended an event in Oregon that provided such a fantastic networking opportunity.
The next Portland Women Grow chapter event is coming up, and I strongly urge TWB readers from Oregon to attend. Whether it's just to have fun, or to meet other like minded people that are in the industry or are trying to get into the industry, this event will be fantastic. I plan on attending, and hope to see you there. If you buy your tickets in advance, they are $25, or $30 at the door (plus processing fee). There are also sponsorship opportunities if you own a company that you want to market to some of the leading Oregon cannabis industry members and fans. If you want to keep up on all things Portland Women Grow related, text WGPDX to 420420 and you can sign up for their alerts. These events sell out fast, so get your ticket(s) sooner rather than later. Below is more information about the event, via Eventbrite (you can also purchase tickets at that link):
When: August 6th, 2015
Where: The Colony 7525 N Richmond Ave Portland, Oregon 97203
