To that point, some fellow CHENers and I attended the annual Startup Spotlight earlier this week.

This lingering winter frost isn’t the only thing making the CHEN crew crave the opposite coast, though.

Leave the Driving …. To Them.

Given the profound impacts industry observers expect them to make from just about any perspective – society, technology, entrepreneurs, public policy, climate change –  the focus is very much well deserved.

The Cannabis Industry Continues to Grow as High as Sativa Strains

  The legalization of cannabis has spread throughout 29 U.S. states thus far, and despite the controversy over the substance, it’s likely to continue expanding across the country. For Massachusetts — the first New England state to legalize cannabis — conversation has sparked between entrepreneurs, innovation start-ups, tech companies and venture capitalists, among others.
