MIT Enterprise Forum of Cambridge presents Cannabis Technology, December 5, 2017

This industry will influence the cultural landscape and impact generations to come. As society adapts to the legalization of cannabis, what roles will technology, education and politics play? What lessons can be learned from the history of cannabis? How can biotechnology, analytical science and quantitative data be leveraged for cannabis industry investors and end users alike? Can California’s successes be replicated and its mistakes avoided?

On Tuesday, December 5, the MIT Enterprise Forum (MITEF) of Cambridge will bring together a spectrum of cannabis cognoscenti across business, academia, and technology to delve into the opportunities presented by the legal cannabis industry. Set for the MIT Stata Center in Cambridge’s Kendall Square, the group will discuss the ways in which nourishing the cannabis industry ecosystem will maximize its contribution to the people of Massachusetts and beyond.

Moderated by entrepreneur, venture capitalist and academic, Vinit Nijiawan, the panel includes:

“The once restrictive borders of cannabis are breaking down, and it’s important to start discussing how Massachusetts can successfully integrate the changes that will be made,” said MITEF of Cambridge Executive Director Katja Wald. “Our speakers have first-hand experience in the legal cannabis industry. They’re excited to share their insights and inspire other entrepreneurs and investors to get engaged and drive things forward.”
