Headset, an analytics startup for the nascent marijuana industry, raised a $12 million Series A round backed by prominent investors earlier this year and has inked deals with market research firm Nielsen and accounting firm Deloitte.

On September 5th at 2 PM EST, Headset CEO Cy Scott will walk BI Prime readers through his pitch deck and share how he convinced VCs, including early Juul investor Poseidon Asset Management, to buy in.

Poseidon partner Emily Paxhia, who led the investment, will also explain how she picks winners in a crowded market, such as cannabis. Business Insider reporter Jeremy Berke will moderate the chat.

It’ll be a must-see for new company founders and aspiring entrepreneurs.
