Social Equity Partnership Programs

“Financial services should be an equal right for all business
owners, not a privilege for some.”

 

– Mark Lozzi, Confia CEO

Confia Partners with Ease Momentum and NCIA
to increase social equity in cannabis

Confia has partnered with Eaze Momentum and the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) to provide social equity members access to fair and affordable financial services. Designed to help qualifying cannabis businesses obtain financial solutions without predatory practices, Confia and our partners aim to elevate deserving small businesses and leaders who have suffered at the hands of inequality. Cannabis operators can now have access to compliant and affordable financial services barring all prejudice.

Who is involved in the Confia Social Equity Program?

Currently, Confia has two partnerships. One is with the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) and the other with Eaze Momentum. 

NCIA is a valuable resource and contributor to the social equity community. As a trade association, membership unlocks exclusive member benefits that help give business owners a leg up on their competition. Some of these benefits include eligibility to serve on member-led committees, speaking opportunities at trade shows and webinars, content submissions to the industry insights blog as well as slots to serve on the Policy Council and Board of Directors.

Eaze Momentum cultivates the growth and success of underrepresented cannabis business founders by providing access to grants, education, and capital. Participants enrolled in the program receive a $50,000 grant, a 12-week business development program led by industry experts, and support from Eaze’s business, marketing, legal, and PR resources. After the 12-week program, participants pitch their businesses to industry-defining investors for the opportunity to raise additional funds.
