About the Organizers

Sproutways

Sproutways brings an open framework to the cannabis and hemp industry. For the longest time, the market has been shrouded by a culture of prohibition. While the global legalization of cannabis and hemp is well underway, the legacy of secrecy is impeding the rapid growth of these markets. Sproutways intends to unlock the value of these markets by taking an open approach to the market. We offer our growers and ecosystem members an open education center, open marketplace and open transaction platform to drive out mistrust and inefficiencies and help our members capture value.
