Our relationship with UCLA recently expanded to include the Anderson School of Management, UCLA’s graduate business school faculty. In a world-and cannabis industry-first, Element 7 was selected ahead of some of the world’s fastest-growing tech, health, and media companies to take part in a Retail Cannabis Industry Thesis in 2018/19.
Five incredibly talented UCLA MBA Students are currently working with Element 7 to research and write their primary thesis on how Element 7 are disrupting California’s $20 Billion Cannabis Retail Industry.
With diverse professional backgrounds at companies including Google, Amazon, Hulu, Medtronic, JP Morgan Chase, PWC, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and Buzzfeed, the team is writing UCLA’s first thesis focused on a specific cannabis industry operator.
The findings of these students and their fresh perspectives will play a huge part in our strategic roadmap over the next 3-5 years, during which time we will be consolidating the retail industry in California with the goal of becoming one of California’s top cannabis retailers.
