Colorado’s up-and-coming marijuana companies could get a hand from the state via a new technical assistance program designed to provide education on business development.

The assistance will come from a new state agency, the Cannabis Business Office, which aims to provide more governmental support to marijuana companies, particularly social equity entrepreneurs.

The agency plans to partner with Make Green Go, a company that provides business-development services to marginalized communities, the Denver Post reported.

The free program will provide participants with curriculum to develop marketing materials, business plans and pitches, among others.
