The sole nonprofit organization to present at this year’s Arcview Investor and Pitch Forum, Athletes For Care (A4C) is set to distinguish itself as a cannabis industry innovator, leader and passionate advocate.
Generously sponsored by the New Jersey CannaBusiness Association (NJCBA), A4C is dedicated to creating a community where athletes can find support, opportunity and purpose in life after a career in professional sports. Founded by a group of pro athletes, united as one voice, to advocate for research and education when addressing important issues facing athletes and the public at large, A4C will present at the “Shark Tank”-like pitch forum.
