Frances González

Frances González is recognized as one of the leaders in the women’s entrepreneurs movement in Cannabis. With more than 15 years of experience in corporate telecommunications, operations and international relations in 2015 she decided to launch her own business in Puerto Rico as founder and executive director of Millennia Solutions, a provider of digital communication tools and solutions for business. Months later medical cannabis is legalized on the island and she pursues further education with subject matter experts. Through her educational journey, Frances launched Latinas Cannapreneurs, a non profit organization based in Puerto Rico with a mission to inspire, educate and elevate the latino community about the culture and industry of cannabis through education, activism and entrepreneurship. Through our network of partners and collaborators we provide educational tools and support to break down stigmas while promoting inclusiveness in the growing green age. Frances was also invited to speak on Cannabis entrepreneurship in Puerto Rico in May 2019 for Canna Ciencia 2019 in Bogota, Colombia, which is the largest cannabis conference in Latin America. She also took the stage to speak last September in CanEX 2019 in Jamaica where she shared the stage yet again with personalities like Steve DeAngelo and Vicente Fox. She attended and presented in Cannabis Salud 2019 in Mexico, and in December she was a featured speaker at the National Women of Cannabis conference in Las Vegas. Her companies are sponsors for all these conferences and also sponsored the Women in Cannabis Study. Frances is also a member and Chair of the Caribbean Policy research of the Minority Cannabis Business Association whose mission is to support equality and diversity in the cannabis industry through policy, empowerment, and connection.
