PitchFest is the first event of PDX Weed Week, and is open to ticket holders who have a cannabis business idea and are looking for funding. How it works is: people with an idea have :60 seconds to “pitch” their idea to the group. The group will vote on the best ideas, and teams will form around those ideas. Over the course of the week, teams will work at developing a minimum viable product to pitch to investors at DemoDay at the end of the week.
The PDX Weed Week lecture series begins Tuesday, Nov. 29 and continues through Thursday, Dec. 1. Attendees can choose from more than 40 informative sessions covering topics in health & wellness, breeding & growing, business & technology, and many more.
