Ben & Jerry’s Co-Founder Ben Cohen to Keynote Marijuana Business Conference & Expo, Cannabis Industry’s Largest B2B Event

Marijuana Business Conference & Expo 2014

DENVER--()--Marijuana Business Daily announced today that Ben Cohen, co-founder Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Inc., will keynote its third annual Marijuana Business Conference & Expo to be held in Las Vegas November 12-14, 2014. Cohen will share his entrepreneurial wisdom with the 1,500 business leaders and investors in America’s cannabis and medical marijuana industry who will be in attendance.

“As America’s cannabis industry nears $3 billion, we look to nationally respected entrepreneurs, such as Ben Cohen, to serve as successful examples of creative management without losing sight of the social responsibility that led so many leaders into this industry.”

Cohen also will serve as a guest judge at the Conference’s new Marijuana Business Pitch Slam, a contest at the Conference for cannabis entrepreneurs interested in polishing their investment pitch skills. (The Pitch Slam is an educational event, not intended as a solicitation of funds.)

Cohen says, “This is a great opportunity to share my experience building a major brand from scratch to a community of entrepreneurs on the leading edge of an explosive market. In sharing my success of driving our business through social values, triple bottom-line practices, and creating benefit to the community at large, I hope to provide the tips and tools to help the industry maintain its independence, minimize consolidation and avoid influence by large conglomerates driven solely by profits.”

George Jage, Publisher Marijuana Business Daily, says, “As America’s cannabis industry nears $3 billion, we look to nationally respected entrepreneurs, such as Ben Cohen, to serve as successful examples of creative management without losing sight of the social responsibility that led so many leaders into this industry.”

As the largest and oldest national trade show for the legal cannabis and medical marijuana industry, the Marijuana Business Conference & Expo attracts attendees from more than 30 states and 10 countries. The Conference, to be held at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino, will feature 60 expert speakers and an Expo Hall with 125 exhibits ranging from financial and legal services to cultivation and processing equipment.
