Confia has partnered with Eaze Momentum and the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) to provide social equity members access to fair and affordable financial services. Designed to help qualifying cannabis businesses obtain financial solutions without predatory practices, Confia and our partners aim to elevate deserving small businesses and leaders who have suffered at the hands of inequality. Cannabis operators can now have access to compliant and affordable financial services barring all prejudice.
Through these programs, qualifying NCIA and Eaze Momentum participants will have access to Confia’s fair and affordable financial services solution along with expert financial compliance guidance for its social equity community.
Through a trusted advisor approach, the partnership with NCIA will make available other key professional services with the intention of encouraging access to fair and affordable services to Social Equity Scholarship Program (SESP) applicants.
Through this partnership, Confia aims to elevate deserving small businesses and leaders who have faced inequality and provide them with compliant and affordable financial services.
When you become part of either social equity partnership program, you will finally gain access to quality financial services that will help you grow your business.
Partnering with NCIA and Eaze Momentum provides Confia with an avenue for our expanded vision and growth of social equity programs. Through both organizations’ longstanding commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the cannabis industry, together we hope to make a difference in the business and lives of those who have been continuously marginalized by the industry’s roadblocks.
Right now, it is difficult to access affordable financial services without predatory fees, and it is Confia’s goal to provide guidance, services, and support to our cannabis industry leaders who deserve it most.
Each program has different requirements for application approval. It is important to learn about each to decide what is the best fit for your operation.

Currently, Confia has two partnerships. One is with the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) and the other with Eaze Momentum.
NCIA is a valuable resource and contributor to the social equity community. As a trade association, membership unlocks exclusive member benefits that help give business owners a leg up on their competition. Some of these benefits include eligibility to serve on member-led committees, speaking opportunities at trade shows and webinars, content submissions to the industry insights blog as well as slots to serve on the Policy Council and Board of Directors.
Eaze Momentum cultivates the growth and success of underrepresented cannabis business founders by providing access to grants, education, and capital. Participants enrolled in the program receive a $50,000 grant, a 12-week business development program led by industry experts, and support from Eaze’s business, marketing, legal, and PR resources. After the 12-week program, participants pitch their businesses to industry-defining investors for the opportunity to raise additional funds.
