Applicants Requested for Missouri Microbusiness License Accelerator Program by BeLeaf and Harvest 360

Six teams will be selected to receive expert guidance and support in the application process for upcoming microbusiness dispensary and wholesale license lottery.

ST. LOUIS – Through its BeLeaf in Equity philanthropic division, BeLeaf Medical is sponsoring a Missouri Microbusiness License Accelerator Program with Harvest 360 leading the cannabis educational and licensing initiative. Those interested in applying for the upcoming microbusiness licensing lottery by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) are encouraged to complete an online survey to be considered for BeLeaf’s Missouri Microbusiness License Accelerator Program.

In an effort to promote growth in the cannabis industry statewide, BeLeaf and Harvest 360 will select three dispensary and three holesale teams following an internal review process. The DHSS application process will begin June 6, 2023 and interested parties have until then to submit for consideration. The final six teams selected for BeLeaf’s Missouri Microbusiness License Accelerator Program will be announced June 14, 2023.

“BeLeaf is eager to help support these teams in their efforts to obtain microbusiness licensing in Missouri,” said BeLeaf CEO Jason Nelson. “Working with Harvest 360, a company renowned for their work in accelerator and social equity programs around the country, these startup cannabis companies will benefit from working with experts in the application process, implementation, technology integration, supply chain management and more.”

The invaluable accelerator program is designed by Harvest 360, one of the most trusted and authoritative cannabis consulting companies using experience-based solutions to guide teams through their application development.

“We will use proven processes to guide the selected teams through all aspects of the application to best position their initiatives for being awarded licenses,” explained Sebastian Nassau, president of Harvest 360. “It’s an incredible opportunity for those serious about applying to learn as much as possible about the process of successfully acquiring and then managing a licensed cannabis operation from some of the most experienced and qualified consultants in the industry that will work closely with each individual team.

According to the DHSS, microbusinesses are marijuana facility licenses issued only to eligible entities and individuals, and are designed to allow marginalized or underrepresented individuals to participate in the legal marijuana market. With that in mind, considerations to participate in BeLeaf’s Missouri Microbusiness License Accelerator Program will include the location of the proposed project, whether the interested team currently holds a cannabis business license, net worth and annual income parameters, as well as other identifiers as outlined by DHSS.
