Become a Leader in the Cannabis Industry with Steep Hill

Updated: Oct 18, 2022

Are you an entrepreneur and thinking about launching your own cannabis lab business but don’t know where to start? Consider becoming a Steep Hill licensee.

A general definition of a licensee is “any business, organization, or individual that has been granted legal permission by another entity to engage in an activity. The permission or license can be given on an express or implied basis” (Segal, 2021). Think franchise-light, where Steep Hill licenses its Intellectual Property and scientific and technical expertise and the licensee partner controls the business operational side. A Steep Hill licensee is a passionate, experienced entrepreneur with a proven track record and success with startups. Along with strong local market customer relationships, regulatory connections, and the requisite capital, a licensee will have success within the cannabis lab business industry with Steep Hill on its side.

As a Steep Hill licensee, you will have access to the most prominent cannabis network and testing industry worldwide. Utilizing Steep Hill’s science and technology, such as our proprietary methodology and SOPs, LIMS integration, and custom-built software solutions, will prove highly beneficial to your cannabis lab business. Other resources at your fingertips as a licensee include our company-built ERP, which provides automated sample tracking from intake to sample prep to reporting, integrated POS, a business intelligence system with on-demand data, and a regulatory interface.

A Steep Hill licensee benefits from the immediate social media, marketing, and PR visibility associated with our lab. Licensees will also be exposed to our loyal customer base.

This information will help you decide your target customer and differentiate your business from the rest.
