The arrangement extends cooperation between the two parties, who also partner on international intelligence & networking events, and are jointly developing media assets in support of the hemp industry.
“The Czech edition of HempToday will allow deeper penetration of the industrial hemp landscape in the Czech Republic, and give us a chance to embrace more Czech hemp stakeholders,” said Hana Gabrielova, CEO at Hempoint. “At the same time, the Czech Republic has many leading institutions and scientists in cannabis. There are many things happening that we can report back to HempToday’s English-language edition. Great stories and a lot of information we want to get out to the international audience.”
Under the licensing partnership, HempToday/Czechia will have rights to Naklo Foundation’s HempToday brand, translation rights to original English language content on HempToday’s leading global hemp industry website, consulting and business development support. In return, HempToday’s international platform will have translation and distribution rights to Czech-language content generated by HempToday/Czechia resources on the ground in the Czech Republic.
3rd non-English edition
The new platform is the third non-English iteration of HempToday, which last April launched HempToday en Español, a Spanish-language edition, under a licensing agreement with Hemp Engineering, Perth, Australia. HempToday since 2017 has published a Japanese language edition in cooperation with Each Japan.
Hempoint and HempToday also are partners in the upcoming Latin American & Caribbean Hemp Summit, Nov. 8-9, 2019 in Montevideo, Uruguay, along with Hemp Engineering. Hempoint and HempToday partner with Shah Hemp Inno-Ventures, Nepal, on the annual Asian Hemp Summit, which marks its second edition Jan. 31-Feb. 1, 2020 in Kathmandu.
