Cassandra Farrington heads up the cannabis industry’s leading daily news website, Marijuana Business Daily.
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.
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.
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.]
