About The Event
Welcome to August Cannabis Professionals!
This month's event we will have Kayvan Khalatbari presenting on the responsibility of industries to the communities in which they operate, because of how those communities and governments can impact the future of those businesses.
"Kayvan Khalatbari is an entrepreneur, community advocate and 2019 candidate for Mayor of Denver. He currently owns 13 businesses in multiple industries, which employ more than 300 people in eight states. He serves on the board of directors for the Colorado Youth Symphony Orchestra and Harm Reduction Action Center and serves as Chairman for the Minority Cannabis Business Association. Additionally, he is a core member of the Alternative Solutions Advocacy Project, which was the primary force behind Denver’s first tiny home village.
Kayvan is a fierce advocate for criminal justice and drug policy reform, the rights of people experiencing homelessness and promoting access to creative opportunities for youth and underserved populations. He has been a mentor in the Denver Kids program for more than a decade and is currently establishing guardianship for two young girls, ages 7 and 11."
