You Won A Micro, Now What? 

Get Your Microbusiness Operational With Expert Industry Insights

So far, 48 microbusiness licenses have officially been awarded (32 wholesale facilities, 16 retail dispensaries) and MoCann is once again assembling a panel of cannabis industry experts to knowledge share and support via key industry / compliance insights, best practices and efficiencies to help ensure a successful microbusiness launch.  

In addition to the panel discussion, microbusiness members also benefit from access to Missouri’s established cannabis industry leaders with over 600 attendees in Springfield.  Micro attendees can benefit from our Government Affairs rule, regulatory and legislative panel discussion, industry networking, a cannabis industry expo with over 40 relevant service providers, a testing lab village, industry after-event and holiday party that puts our commercial and micro members face to face in a casual yet professional business atmosphere. 

MoCann meetups help bring together our industry under one tent and work to get industry participants informed, educated and prepared to integrate into Missouri’s highly successful cannabis industry.
