NEW YORK, March 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — North 6th Agency, Inc. (N6A), an award-winning communications and social media agency based in New York City and Toronto, today announced the opening of an office in Colorado in partnership with Canopy, a venture fund and business accelerator for companies developing ancillary products and services for the legal cannabis industry.
Located at the Canopy headquarters in Boulder, Colorado, the satellite office provides N6A with a year-round presence in Colorado, facilitating a heightened level of collaboration, support, and activations with clients, media and other key influencers in the cannabis ecosystem.
Additionally, the Colorado office will serve as a secondary hub for N6A Cannabis Group employees who are based in N6A’s New York and Toronto offices, enabling them to travel to Colorado for important industry events and educational initiatives.
“As the most established adult-use cannabis market in the country, Colorado remains one of the most influential hubs in the cannabis industry, with an impressive crop of companies that have emerged over the past few years,” said Robert Vanisko, Director of the N6A Cannabis Group. “Our partners at Canopy have been instrumental in the growth and development of many of these, and we look forward to working more closely alongside them to continue to raise the profile of the entire industry.”
The N6A Cannabis Group, which launched in January 2017, has established itself as a leading provider of strategic communications, media relations, and social media services for companies in the legal cannabis industry that are looking to elevate brand awareness. Clients in the group span all aspects of the industry, including brands, dispensaries, consumer products, ancillary products, technology and data providers, and professional service and financial service firms.
“All startups need to take PR seriously, especially as they seek funding and look to build their customer bases. While we’ve worked closely together with N6A over the past two years to elevate Canopy’s media presence, having their presence in the office on a daily basis will add yet another helpful mentor for our accelerator cohort and alumni,” said Micah Tapman, Managing Director of Canopy.
Leadership from the N6A Cannabis Group will be featured at an upcoming Canopy event session, “PR in Cannabis: Manage your Message.” The session will take place at CanopyHQ in Boulder, Colorado on Tuesday, March 27th, from 6-8pm MT during Canopy’s monthly meetup.
