Join the cannabis industry's premier business accelerator and grow your company. The CanopyBoulder experience gives founders unparalleled access to mentors, investors, industry pros and fellow cannabis entrepreneurs.

CanopyBoulder is a business accelerator and investment fund for seed-stage ancillary cannabis companies. Our goal is to help develop the companies that the industry needs to grow rapidly, profitably and sustainably.

We’ve been investing in ancillary cannabis entrepreneurs since 2015, with 79 investments to date, making us the most experienced cannabis specific accelerator in the country.

CanopyBoulder provides seed-stage companies with initial seed stage funding and a network of advisors, mentors, industry pros and investors for life – all with the cannabis and general entrepreneurship expertise needed to rapidly move a business to the next level.

Our partnerships with groups like The Arcview Group,  give our teams access to over 650 angel investors who are proactively looking to invest in cannabis companies. And our alumni network of companies and founders may well be the most valuable aspect of Canopy’s offer to entrepreneurs
