Cannabis Specialists In Development, Construction, Security And Job Opportunities Discuss Best Practices For The Evergreen State

SEATTLE - September 4, 2014 ( newswire) Calling all budding cannabis professionals in Washington state: The Cannabusiness Accelerator event at the Silver Cloud Hotel– Broadway in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood will convene September 19 with the support of the industry’s leaders. The event will serve as a locus of networking and informational know-how as well as a showcase for program partners which include Your Green Contractor, CannaGuard Security, The High Road Interior Design, and Competitive Edge Engineering.

The Cannabusiness Accelerator will provide the first job fair in Seattle dedicated to job opportunities in the marijuana industry.

"The Cannabusiness Accelerator helps connect dispensary and grow facility owners and managers with technology, people and solutions," noted Cannabusiness Accelerator CEO Stan Wagner. "We are spreading knowledge and best practices in this growing space."

Nathan Mendel, President, Your Green Contractor, Inc., specializes in building grow houses, and has been spreading his know-how from Colorado to Washington to Massachusetts. He looks forward to helping build facilities in the newest state to legalize commercial marijuana. "The legal cannabis trade in Colorado has been an absolute boon to the local economy. The commercial real estate market upswing has been well documented with industrial vacancy rates at record lows, but the commercial building contractor market has been positively affected as well," Mendel said.

Competitive Edge Engineering is a development services firm that works with property owners, land developers and professional design firms to tackle the needs of getting a cannabusiness facility off the ground. "The Washington state market has enormous potential," said Brett Gilbert, President of Competitive Edge Engineering. "There are many development hurdles to be overcome such permitting and integrating canna-retail and grow facilities into their surroundings. Those who are good neighbors will benefit greatly."

CannaGuard Security focuses on creating custom security systems to meet the demands of Washington state and Oregon’s cannabis industries. The firm prides itself on its superior understanding of Initiative 502 compliance issues and its experience working at businesses ranging from small retail shops to large grow operations. "As we grow across the northwest, we’re looking to educate i502 businesses. A lot of old technology may be compliant, but that doesn’t make it robust or secure," said Noah Stokes, President of CannaGuard Security. "We design our systems to be efficient and easy-to-use."

The Cannabusiness Accelerator will host a press preview tele-conference call on Wednesday, September 10 at 9:00am PT. For more information or to request press credentials, please contact Shawna McGregor, The Rosen Group, 917 971 7852 or
