Cannabis industry growth

According to the CB Insights Marijuana Trailblazers 2018 Report, the legal cannabis market more than doubled in 2017 from $278m to $593m in disclosed funding.

Ongoing developments in the cannabis industry have spurred multiple startups within spaces such as Legal Compliance, Medical, Agriculture, Retail Management, Seed-to-Sale Software, Operations, Payment Systems, Customer Relationship Management, Big Data, Business Intelligence, Social/Digital Content, Education, Media and Marketing.

As these businesses are growing, so does the need for talent. With some reports projecting over 414,000 new job openings by 2021, companies need to make sure they have the right tools and partnerships to help them fill these roles.
