The carefully chosen judges brought a broad range of cannabis experience in Canada including business operations, advocacy, constitutional law, and cultivation, making them idyllic to serve as the judging panel. Finalists were chosen from submissions of companies operating in emergent segments of the cannabis industry such as micro-growers, micro-processors, hemp production, lab testing and retailers. Canopy Rivers invited the finalists to pitch in front of the judges for their chance to be awarded up to $1,000,000 of seed capital.
