High Risk, High Potential, High-healed Entrepreneurs

Gina Dubbe and Dr Leslie Apgar share with us how a ob-gyn and an engineer turned entrepreneur became best friends and embarked on a cannabis enterprise that paid off big.

With equal parts humor, humility, and resolve, they discuss their challenge and triumphs. They will explore their path to a wildly successful cannabis dispensary, launching a product line, tackling the unexpected and meaningful issues they’ve uncovered, and walking ahead with their heads – and heels – held high thanks to the lessons they’ve learned along the way.
