“The value that Pura Botanicals has received from the Trade Accelerator Program is not only being able to plan how we're going to export into a new market, but also having a panel of experts there to guide and coach us—bringing all their wisdom and knowledge to the table. Having those contacts afterwards for support and resources is invaluable.”


Lane Edwards
Founder and CEO, Pura Botanicals
