Grow South Africa with Cannabis – Invitation to a GIBS Forum.

By |Published On: May 20th, 2019|

You are cordially invited to join a dynamic discussion on how South Africa has the potential to create a uniquely African cannabis industry that can benefit everyone, especially marginalised rural and township communities, some of whom are part of an existing (illegal) cannabis supply chain within our informal sector.

With cannabis legalisation on the horizon for many countries, it has ushered in a new era of potential economic benefits. South Africa’s unique cannabis constitutional rights combined with ideal growing conditions, positions our country to take full advantage of this burgeoning industry. There are however risks of small-scale cannabis farmers and entrepreneurs being dominated by large corporations as well as a stringent regulatory framework.

The Gordon Institute of Business Science is hosting this forum on Wednesday 29 May at 6pm and you can book your tickets HERE. Seats are limited.


Suresh Patel – moderator, serial entrepreneur, Gibs alumni

Myrtle Clarke: Managing Director of Fields of Green for ALL

Paul-Michael Keichel, Senior Partner at Schindlers Attorneys

Hein Gerwel, lecturer in rural development and agribusiness, Department of Agricultural Economics, Stellenbosch University

GG Alcock, entrepreneur and author of Kasinomics Revolution

    Sadly, this message was received more than two weeks after the event.
    Will there be a report coming out of this event? And will there be on-going follow-up meetings?
    Really sorry to have missed this.
