The Certified Partner Program is not "area exclusive" at this time, nor are there plans to offer geographic exclusivity in the near future. Again, the goal of this program is to serve as many cannabis businesses as possible, and to do that we need A LOT of help.
We also know that most of our Certified Partners will SPECIALIZE, either in a particular niche (i.e. service companies, brick and mortar, SaaS providers, etc.) or in a particular range of services (i.e. industry consultants, government regulators, ancillary businesses, legal compliance, etc.)
For this reason, it doesn't make sense to restrict the number of Certified Partners in a specific geographic region. That may change over time, but for now, our hope is that Certified Partners will network, share ideas, and ideally send clients to one another based on each agency's area of specialization.
It’s also worth noting that as more Certified Partners come on board, the Green CulturED brand will grow in dominance, which will make it that much easier for you to attract and retain clients.
In other words, it’s the proverbial "high tide that raises all ships."
