Startupfest introduces #CannabisFest, and a Cannabus road trip from Toronto to Montreal for the inaugural event

Montreal, June 14, 2018 – Startupfest, the biggest startup conference in the country, and HelloMD, today’s largest online community of health and wellness cannabis consumers, have teamed up to introduce CannabisFest, a one day event dedicated to the cannabis entrepreneurs and the booming multi-billion dollar market. With the support of Ample Organics, and Pistil, they’ve also introduced a road trip from Toronto to Montreal, called Cannabus, to bring entrepreneurs from the Greater Toronto area to the highly anticipated event, July 10, in Montreal, Canada.

The Cannabus departs July 9th from downtown Toronto, and will be packed full with cannabis entrepreneurs, conference speakers, industry media, and more.

“Normalizing cannabis and the industry behind it is key to creating opportunities going forward. Entrepreneurs need to collaborate and support one another as we charge ahead into uncharted waters. What better way to foster this than to put a bunch of them together on a bus headed to the inaugural CannabisFest”, said Larry Lisser, a founding team member of HelloMD. “I can’t wait to see what they come up with along the way.”
Cannabus tickets can be purchased on the Startupfest website here, for $199 (which includes travel + your event pass). Bus-only tickets can be purchased as well upon request.
