To be held at HempToday Center in the Palace at Nakło, Lelów, Poland, the Summit will gather leading hemp industry veterans, investors and startups for two days of networking and lectures.
The scholarship program aims to connect entrepreneurs with mentors and potential investors, said Kehrt Reyher of HempToday. “There’s still a lot of need out there to connect great ideas with capital and expertise,” Reyher said. “While there are so many things happening in hemp, we still have to work on building up a center of gravity where great companies, people and ideas can connect,” Reyher said of the gatherings held at HempToday Center.
The entrepreneur scholarship application deadline is May 15.
