Cannabis Startups


Welcome to the second edition of Cannabis Startups Survey. What started in small last year should give all of us now an overview about the status quo.

Since we interviewed the first German startups in the cannabis sector on a small scale last year, it is now time to go beyond the borders and learn even more about us cannabis MAKERS in times of CORONA – from the ebb and flow of market trends to important and evolving conversations on topics like diversity and integration, sexual harassment, corporate culture and the role of technology in society.

To take all these changes into account, we would like to extend the scope of our survey not only to founders but also to employees. Where do the perspectives of founders and employees diverge and coincide? Where are managers making progress – and where are founders lagging behind? With this survey, which we would like to make available to everyone, we would like to provide detailed insight into the challenges of running a start-up company, as well as new perspectives on the truth behind glassdoor reviews, compensation packages, distance working and more.

We hope that this mix of basic questions, new inquiries and additional perspectives will provide an even sharper understanding of what business founders think, feel, fear and appreciate as we move into 2022.
