Harvest 360 Technologies LLC and GrowGeneration Corp. officially launched the first phase of the New Jersey NEXTGEN education and training accelerator for micro-cultivation cannabis license applicants, at the CannaTech Expo in Atlantic City.
"It was an honor to be able to introduce the first five teams to be named finalists in the NEXTGEN by GrowGen program, to the staff at BLDV, Harvest 360, and GrowGeneration," said Todd Scattini, Chairman of BLDV and Global CEO for Harvest 360. "This is a powerful comprehensive program being sponsored by GrowGeneration, and it was a joy to see it in action."
GrowGeneration has made a commitment of over $500K to provide 25 scholarships and additional bonus incentives for the Grand Prize winners who will be selected from the 25 finalists. These 5 Grand Prize Winners, or Final Five will receive a package of startup support and access to funding to open and get to market.
"The education and application solution built for NEXTGEN by GrowGen was customized to uniquely suit this market, and this license type," said Yale Peebles, Chief Executive Officer for BLDV. "This is an example of the technology platform deployment strategy that is helping BLDV scale operations and provide client solutions, while making an impact in the industry."
NEXTGEN by GrowGeneration is making a difference in New Jersey. On May 17th, 2022, GrowGen and Harvest 360 sponsored an expungement event in partnership with Best Buds and the Mid-Atlantic States Career and Education Center, in Woodbury New Jersey. This was the first of a series of NEXTGEN workshops, meetups and events, planned throughout New Jersey in 2022.
