Being a startup is challenging enough. Being a startup in an industry that is just starting itself up in an uncertain environment? Yikes.

Cannabis startups have to deal with a perfect storm of challenges every day. We can help you traverse these waters to be one of the survivors and make the most of this rare market opportunity.

The Keating team has been growing startups for over 20 years. We also understand the ongoing challenges of the cannabis ecosystem. The landscape is constantly evolving, the rules changing and varying from state to state, and the industry is the most audit-prone in recent history. Getting everything right and avoiding disaster requires focus, experience, and expertise.

That’s where we come in. We love this stuff.
