Jessica F. Gonzalez was quoted in a NJ.com article titled "N.J. Cannabis Conference Panel Will Examine How Minority Groups, Women Can Access Multibillion-dollar Industry."
She suggests that the access to capital is, and has always been, at the forefront of aspiring entrepreneur's minds.
“Access to capital is a major hurdle for every company involved in the cannabis industry but especially so for minorities and women entrepreneurs[.]" "Given that access to traditional methods of obtaining capital, such as bank loans, are not feasible, companies must look to private investors for funds.”
Jessica goes on to address access to human capital as well as the importance of forming partnerships with experienced professionals.
