Cannabis of Los Angeles (COLA) is the first of its kind brand and enterprise development company created by Dani Shaker and Sherri Franklin to incubate urban entrepreneurs within its operating companies and to accelerate the development of social equity cannabis related companies. COLA’s strategic and synergistic partnerships by and between industry leading companies, social equity entrepreneurs and emerging companies will co-exist within a vertically integrated ecosystem and will foster innovation and access to cannabis industry business ownership and facilitate co-branding & marketing and distribution networking to help urban entrepreneurs sustain operations and thrive. COLA’s GoVerde Incubator facilities will have the capacity to co-package products for brand entrepreneurs and white label products for our affiliate licensed retail cannabis stores helping them to brand their identity and target market specific demand within their local trade areas. Co-packaged brands will have priority shelf space in COLA affiliated retail cannabis stores such as Muthatree.
Our business model takes into consideration that the cannabis market in the greater Los Angeles basin will continue to evolve as the industry transitions from underground product sales to a regulated market. Market valuations will continue to flux as the industry embarks on business taxation at the city, county and state levels and becomes accountable for payment of payroll and federal taxes. We also understand that market shifts will occur as many former medical marijuana patients elect to become adult-use consumers, and that more licenses are granted by the plethora of jurisdictions in the State of California which will cause supply and demand to fluctuate. We understand the challenges and have prepared compliant operations plans and business models to address these issues and a consumer centered service model that will drive our market viability and sustainability for our ecosystem of cannabis businesses.
