Background and Details
As the founder of the San Diego Cannabis Business Group Meetup (, many of you are probably aware of my vision for the cannabis industry in San Diego:

Now, we are one step closer to legitimizing the cannabis industry as a viable and respectable business in San Diego. On Monday (June 19), San Diego Startup Week (SDSW) kicks off a week long conference which has a new, dedicated cannabis track (#GrowSD) ( for startups. Think of it as a year's worth of SD Cannabis Business Group meetups squeezed into a single week, thanks to approximately 175 volunteers who put together SDSW. As the SDSW cannabis track captain I'm happy to say that, for the price of one ticket, you'll get access to 250+ talks, events, panels and sessions across multiple tracks (cannabis, cleantech, design, biotech, etc). One ticket also includes nightly social events and after-parties. This is SDSW's fifth year in a row. Last year, we had 3,000 attendees for SDSW. Help us break that record by getting your ticket and enjoy SDSW.

Please use this exclusive cannabis discount link for 20% off your SDSW all access, week-long ticket ($100 ticket price, normally $80):
