The most excellent adventures of a Wharton MBA in the legal marijuana business:
The emerging legal marijuana business is attracting money and attention. But what's it like to invest and manage in this industry? After 30 years on Wall Street, Robert Birnbaum founded and ran one of the initial four licensed medical marijuana producers in Connecticut. Join Robert as he describes the progression from “How hard could this be? It’s a weed!”, to facing surprising challenges, pitfalls, and opportunities, until finally a successful company emerged. It's a business like no other.
Join fellow CEOs and members of Wharton's MBA Entrepreneurship and Cannabis Business Clubs to explore this timely topic. We will share a Jimmy John's sandwich lunch with students and delve into the emerging marijuana business.
