George Boyadjian is the founder, owner, and teaches every class and seminar. He also works personally with consulting clients and is the key person involved in training Cannabis business clients to manage their businesses. George is supported in these business activities by a knowledgeable staff and various consultants who perform event management and registration functions.

George Boyadjian founded 420 College 12 years ago as a result of his experience in going through the planning, application and organizational process of starting a legal cultivation and medical marijuana collective business. He saw a need for seminars and consulting to help people navigate the application and business start-up process so he started 420 College to fill that niche.

At that time, it was operating under the name Cannabis Career Institute. The Cannabis Career Institute partners eventually split and in 2009 Mr. Boyadjian continued on by starting 420 College. The only other institution from that time that still teaches people how to how to legally open and operate a cannabis-associated business is Oaksterdam University. However, George Boyadjian is the only one left of the original cannabis business educators still operating his own educational Institution.

Through 420 College, George Boyadjian has functioned as one of the thought leaders in the Cannabis industry. He has worked to shape legalization legislation along with Cal NORML and other leading cannabis industry organizations.

420 College has quite literally educated and put in business many of the leading entrepreneurs in the industry.
