WE ARE READY FOR THE NEXT STEP

“The XI Program is giving everyone here the tools and the direction that we need to make this work. You can have the greatest product or idea, but if you don’t have a great team backing that product, or a great network to support you, then it’s just very difficult or impossible. At the end of the day, it is the people that are most important and the relationships. We’re very excited to get our product completed, and get it out and promote it, and get other people excited about what we’re doing.”

Peter Krzyzanowsky, CEO and Cofounder of Cannacist
