Wed, Dec 6, 2017 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST

Ellevate is thrilled to host Twitter Chats featuring inspirational women and men doing great things supporting gender equality from all over the world.

Please join us at 12PM EST on Wednesday, December 6th for our #EllevateYourself Twitter Chat with Cassandra Farrington (@cbfarrington).

Cassandra Farrington is the Co-Founder and CEO of Marijuana Business Daily.

Cassandra heads up the cannabis industry’s leading daily news website, Marijuana Business Daily and its family of content resources for the B2B cannabis marketplace, including two national conferences.

A former VP at Citi, Cassandra considers herself a fugitive from Corporate America. She and co-founder, Anne Holland, saw a nascent industry that lacked reliable, unbiased news coverage, was underserved with regard to opportunities for professionals to forge connections between the professionals building an industry, and needed a repository for industry-wide business data.

Cassandra earned her MBA from the University of Texas, McCombs School of Business.

Marijuana Business Daily was named to the Inc 500 in 2016, having experienced 1288% growth over a three-year period, and the Inc 5000 in 2017, at #528.

Their trade show, The Marijuana Business Conference & Expo (MJBizCon) was named the fastest growing trade show in the U.S. by Trade Show Executive Magazine in 2015. In 2016, both the Spring and the Fall Marijuana Business Conference & Expo received high placements in the The Fastest 50 as well. [The 2017 MjBizCon is hoping to achieve top rankings again as they move to a bigger space in the Las Vegas convention center.]

Cassandra was recognized as one of Top Women in Media 2016 by Folio: Top Women in Media Awards for her entrepreneurship.
