  • Regulation & law: How should emerging companies factor the regulatory environment into their business model, and how technology can be leveraged to scale in a complex regulatory scheme.
  • Expansion: How should founders think about scaling outside of their local market and engaging with multi state operators, or even looking internationally? What actions should you take when thinking about successful distribution and global expansion?
