Budding Risk is the brainchild of Dana Coates and Josh Acosta.   After working in the insurance brokerage industry for many years, they started noticing common complaints among new cannabis accounts. Business owners in the cannabis industry were finding it difficult to:

  • Access multiple insurance carriers to obtain the lowest pricing
  • Understand what the heck insurance professionals were saying
  • Find someone who was experienced in the complicated and ever changing cannabis industry
And so, Budding Risk was born! We're here to help you solve your unique insurance and risk management challenges.
