Why We Started Fast Track

Behind every flourishing cannabis startup is the guiding light of seasoned mentors who have provided advice, created opportunities, and cleared the path, often before anyone else even had faith in the vision. However, securing a valuable mentor and nurturing a fruitful relationship isn’t a simple task, particularly in the dynamic world of cannabis startups. Our program, FAST TRACK, was specifically conceived to link established leaders eager to work in tandem with, and impart their valuable insights to, the next wave of innovators in the cannabis industry. Since our inception in 2021, we’ve facilitated a couple of mentor-mentee partnerships, fostering significant connections through structured one-on-one dialogues and a more extensive community experience.

How it Works

FAST TRACK is a 6 months mentorship journey that matches numerous experienced cannabis industry leaders with high-potential entrepreneurs in the sector. Mentees undergo our potent pairing process to locate the best possible Mentor who aligns with their career aspirations, optimizing the Mentor’s influence. After every pair is partnered, we offer an array of playbooks and tried-and-true practices on how to fully benefit from this mentorship opportunity, including conversation frameworks and insightful queries. Each pair then meets for one hour every other week, for a total of six one-on-one sessions, to discuss the Mentee’s professional ambitions, strategies for nurturing leadership abilities, and guidance for navigating the complexities of a startup in the cannabis industry. Besides these one-on-one meetings, we also host virtual professional growth workshops, curated educational sessions, and more intimate community experiences tailored for cannabis startups and investors.

Not at all. We believe in creating the most diverse community and are excited to open up our mentorship program to those outside our existing network.

Becoming a CS  Mentor or Mentee is by application only.

You should have significant experience as an operating leader, founder, or executive. We are seeking folks across a diverse range of industries and roles — design, engineering, customer success, sales, HR, product marketing, etc. Most of our Mentors have 3+ years of experience — but we make exceptions for people with an uncanny ability to coach and wisdom beyond their years.

We’re seeking the best founders and operators at both early- and late-stage tech companies looking to work side-by-side and share their experiences with their Mentee. We’re specifically seeking women, underrepresented minorities, and people who have had unconventional paths to tech.

This program runs from January 6th through November 23rd. We require mentorship pairs to meet six times over the course of six months. You are also required to attend a 1-hour training session during the week of August 29th.
