Why Should You Attend GrassRoots?

by Josh McBroom

There are a lot of great benefits to attending a hackathon or startup competition. Here's what we've come up with for GrassRoots:

  • Expand your network - Be around other professionals (sponsors, coaches, and fellow attendees) who are passionate about both technology and cannabis

 

  • Find a co-founder - Truly get to know someone by working together on a project, and you might just find the yin to your yang and do amazing things together.

 

  • Find a job within the industry - Many of our sponsors are hiring, or you may meet someone who knows the right person

 

  • Learn something new - With so many talented people together and so much being done, even a hardened startup-veteran may learn something valuable

 

  • Launch a company - While the event only lasts a weekend, absolutely nothing prevents teams from continuing to work on their project!

 

  • Food and drink - For the ticket price of $100 you get 7 meals throughout the weekend, without having to cook or clean

 

  • Have fun - Work hard, play hard! In addition to all the cool people you'll meet, we'll have beer and wine on-hand, with a cannabis-friendly afterparty following the event on Sunday
