Tabula Rasa Ventures, an Energia company focused on incubation and investment in the psychedelic industry, announced the candidates of its Fall 2020 incubator program designed to: further the development of businesses in the psychedelic industry through executive mentorship; increase diversity and inclusion within the psychedelic ecosystem, and develop an infrastructure to assist entrepreneurs without access to traditional capital.
“For the Fall 2020 round of incubator candidates, we narrowed our scope to start-ups and entrepreneurs that will create a more direct, positive impact on the psychedelic industry and community,” said Energia Founder and CEO Marik Hazan. “The reality is, we are in the infancy stages of a psychedelic renaissance building an industry, and it is imperative we create an equitable, impact-driven psychedelic ecosystem and we believe these candidates will do just that.”
