Cannabis Startup Competition

Cannabis is one of the fastest-growing industries in the US and is expanding all around the world. We want to hear from BU Terriers that are developing innovative ancillary companies within this industry. The grand prize winner will receive $10,000!

On Thursday, November 7, the BU community and public is invited to hear the finalists pitch for the $10,000 grand prize! The event includes short pitches, industry update from local experts, and networking reception.


  • $10,000!
  • Consulting from Green Lion Partners, who have worked over a dozen companies within this industry


  • At least one team member must be a current BU student or a BU alumni 
  • The idea/company must be ancillary; those that support the cannabis industry but do not come directly in contact with the plant. They include things like software, services, accessories, agricultural products, etc.
