Get into the next trillion dollar industry on the ground floor

CanopyBoulder is the only 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.

Since 2015, we’ve helped launch 79 businesses, made over 90 investments and watched our alumni raise over $35million in follow-on funding from a wide variety of sources including angel investors, family offices, private equity funds, and hedge funds.

What does CanopyBoulder offer?

  • Initial seed-stage funding
  • Mentorship from our network of industry pros and investors for life
  • Access to a community of entrepreneurs (Read about why this is critical to growing a company rapidly)
  • Brand recognition that sets you apart from the competition
  • Help with rapid company growth

If thats not enough, our partnership with The Arcview Group gives 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
