GRAND HAVEN – CannaBIZ Connection has partnered with Sensi Magazine Group LLC to launch SensiConnects.Com, an online community where business owners can connect and build relationships service providers in the cannabis industry across the United States, starting with Michigan, Florida and Pennsylvania.
CannaBIZ Connection was founded in January 2018 and in 2019 began hosting weekly networking mixers. When COVID-19 hit Michigan, the organization quickly adapted and started hosting its events virtually. CannaBIZ Connection also launched an app, a new website, and an online community for its growing membership base. Sensi Connects Managing Director, Jamie Cooper.
“I am excited about this partnership and the opportunities it will bring to the businesses in the markets where we are expanding,” said Sensi Connects Managing Director Jamie Cooper, who founded CannaBIZ Connection. “I have had the honor of working closely with Sensi Media Group for the last 18 months and launched Sensi Magazine in Michigan in 2019. Together, we are going to help connect the industry nationally, in a state by state ongoing effort that will follow legalization wherever it happens.”
The new partnership hopes to build communities around cannabis and cannabis businesses nationally—something that both Sensi and CannaBIZ Connection believe can be done through integrating the publication and the platform and hosting events that continue to bring the industry and its supporters together. With eleven states adopting adult-use cannabis and 35 with medical-only, the market for a business connection platform continues to grow.
“Jamie and the team have created a community that connects owners in a way that solves business challenges,” said Ron Kolb, Founder of Sensi Magazine Weekly Virtual B2B Speed Networking Events. “Sensi is all about bringing would-be consumers and non-consumers together. We are thrilled to bring this platform into our Sensi ecosystem and pumped for the value we will be able to create for cannabis owners all around the country,”
Sensi Connects will host virtual speed networking events in all of its markets each week, giving business professionals the opportunity to build relationships through conversation and be a part of a growing referral network nationwide. Licensed cannabis business professionals and ancillary providers are invited to attend the virtual speed networking events at no cost.
