Can the Union of Equity and Tech Save Cannabis? A Closer Look At The SXSW 2023 Cannabis Track

We’re excited to officially announce the date and time of our SXSW 2023 panel, "Can the Union of Equity and Tech Save Cannabis". The cannabis industry has long seen its growth and accessibility stymied by federal prohibition and social stigma—particularly through the disproportionate penalties for production, possession and consumption of cannabis by minorities. Those same factors continue to limit the willingness of the tech industry to improve the accessibility of the cannabis sector through the sort of web-based solutions that have transformed numerous other sectors.

The panel will be on March 11, 2023 at 10:00 AM in the Austin Convention Center, Room 9C. We hope to see you there!

On this panel, you can expect to hear musings and perspectives from Michelle Mendoza, Vice President of Innovation at Sweet Flower, Steven Jung, Chief Operating Officer at Pax, Tanisha Robinson, Chief Transformation Officer at The Parent Company, and Vince C. Ning, Co-founder and Co-CEO of Nabis.

The goal of presenting this panel at SXSW 2023 is to identify the pain points in the cannabis industry that could be resolved through equity-based tech solutions, with actionable takeaways cannabis and tech companies alike can implement today to drive forward momentum in both industries.
