The Initiative is an accelerator program, business bootcamp and funding resource for female founded cannabis businesses.


By bringing together one of the biggest and most connected networks in the cannabis space, The Initiative works to ensure that female founded and female run companies have the greatest chance to be innovators, creators and success stories.

Through our in-class accelerator model, networking events, retreats and access to funding we can make sure that the cannabis industry remains the most progressive and gender balanced emerging industry possible.

The Initiative is housed in Portland’s cannabis friendly gathering space “The Commune.” Available to rent for all events.
