Player's Network, Inc. Announces Launch of Marijuana Accelerator Division

New division will help identify acquisitions, joint ventures, manage partnerships and identify human capital

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - May 2, 2017) - Player's Network, Inc. (OTCQB: PNTV), a diversified holding company operating in media and marijuana, today announces the acquisition of Marijuana Incubator and its further development to launch a new division called Marijuana Accelerator.

Marijuana Accelerator is part of PNTV's overall strategy to gain market share by developing a national footprint in the legal medical marijuana industry. Aligned with its mission "to identify and develop ventures in the marijuana industry," Marijuana Accelerator is designed as a marijuana industry ecosystem that will attract entrepreneurs and investors to the PNTV network for partnership opportunities.

Marijuana Accelerator intends to work in the following capacities:

  • Entrepreneurs and Companies. Provide capital, tools and resources for entrepreneurs.

  • Partners and Joint Ventures. Utilize a growing network to assist companies by facilitating introductions and help to identify joint ventures.

  • Investors. Identify companies with significant growth potential and present them to a growing network of investors.

  • Work with us. Recruit and place seasoned professionals (from all industries) into its portfolio companies.

The business model of Marijuana Incubator and its domain name were purchased by PNTV for 1 million restricted shares. After further development, PNTV decided to launch under the name Marijuana Accelerator and secured the domain name MarijuanaAccelerator.com to establish a strong online presence.

"The marijuana industry is lacking much-needed accelerator and incubator-style mentoring organizations, and we are pleased to present our unique solution to meet this need," says Brett H. Pojunis, member of PNTV's Board of Directors. "There is a lot of excitement in this industry. It reminds me of the dot com era, as we get elevator pitches all the time! Over the next few months we will be heavily marketing Marijuana Accelerator and we believe it will be a great lead source for us."

PNTV CEO Mark Bradley adds, "The timing of this venture couldn't be better. Marijuana Accelerator is a fantastic tool we will use to organize and review the immense opportunities available in the marijuana industry. I am excited to see the kinds of relationships that come out of this."
