Helping Black entrepreneurs and innovators procure ownership in the cannabis industry

The Community for Entrepreneurs Engaged in Development (CEED) is the newest platform helping Black people take their fair share of ownership in the billion-dollar cannabis industry. 

Founded by husband and wife Tre’Von Dorsey and Mercedes Teasley-Dorsey, the artificial-backed digital platform connects Black entrepreneurs to the resources required to launch, scale, and grow cannabis and cannabis-adjacent businesses.
