Canadian entrepreneur, financier, author and TV personality Kevin O’Leary is keynote speaker at the Grow Up Conference & Expo in Niagara falls next week.

The conference, set for Sept. 7-8, includes a plethora of events including a cannabis investment breakfast, an inaugural growers lunch, a women growers breakfast and a “grow-at-home” workshop.

O’Leary will be the opening keynote at 10 a.m. on Sept. 7, as well as the cannabis investment breakfast earlier that morning.

NICHE Canada CEO Barinder Rasode will be speaking on the self-regulation panel, among the conference’s more than 100 speakers.

“Join us as we party steps away from the brink of the Horseshoe Falls,” the event website states. “You will have a breath taking view of the falls to enjoy while networking and mingling with the best in the cannabis industry. This exclusive networking event is open to speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, conference delegates and VIP Growers.”
