Van der Pop to launch branded cannabis with WeedMD in November 2017

TORONTO, ON—(Marketwired – October 19, 2017) – Van der Pop (VdP), North America's leading female–focused cannabis brand, is pleased to announce its two branded strains of cannabis will be available for purchase by the end of November, in partnership with WeedMD, a federally–licensed producer and distributor of medical cannabis in Canada, through the WeedMD website. VdP will offer two different strains exclusively to patients registered through the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) system. Van der Pop will celebrate the launch with the inaugural 'Van der Pop Presents: Women & Weed' event on Nov. 7 in Toronto, providing an engaging, educational afternoon for women, focused on a variety of cannabis–related topics. The event was created as a result of a large–scale North American survey undertaken by Van der Pop in August 2017, unearthing beliefs and perceptions surrounding cannabis held by the 1500 women consulted. Results from the ground–breaking survey will also be unveiled and discussed.

True to VdP's aim to provide beautifully designed products and experiences to consumers, the strains will be available as part of a limited edition kit that will feature each strain in childproof packaging, two sleek Miren jars for airtight, UV–protected storage, VdP rolling papers and other welcome goodies. The launch will be marked with a free speaker's series called Van der Pop Presents: Women & Weed on Tuesday, November 7, focused on topics and issues in the cannabis industry specifically as they relate to women, featuring keynote speakers Tahira Rehmatullah (former GM of Marley Natural), Barinder Rasode (CEO, NICHE Canada), Olivia Harris (CCO, LEVO) and more, hosted by April Pride (founder of Van der Pop). Van der Pop will also partner with a brand–new group called High, The Collective, to present one of the panels. The Van der Pop study surveyed more than 1500 women across North America and focused on their experiences with the current cannabis landscape, attitudes, perceptions, behaviours and expectations about the future of the industry as it adapts to growing legalization.

“I am thrilled to finally release this collaboration. Our goal is to provide a consistent, beautiful experience for women that addresses their therapeutic needs. We're confident that these carefully–chosen, grown and cultivated strains will fit in perfectly with the rest of our Van der Pop offerings,” said Pride. “The launch kit is the cherry on top of this partnership with WeedMD, and I'm so looking forward to our November event. It's going to be an insightful, exciting day speaking on a whole host of cannabis–related issues with an incredible lineup of accomplished women.”

The Study
Significant findings include the fact that, while 6 out of 10 female cannabis consumers search online for cannabis related info, only 26% feel like they have a go–to resource. As well, nearly 7 in 10 women who either consume cannabis or are interested in doing so, feel there is a negative stigma associated with cannabis consumption, relatively consistent across legal, medicinal and pre–legalization states in the US, as well as in Canada. The conclusion that women have a thirst for accurate, specific information about cannabis led to the creation of the innovative Women & Weed event, to help guide women through the cannabis space and create an opportunity to connect with like–minded consumers.

Event Details
Van der Pop Presents: Women & Weed (Nov. 7 at The Addisons Residence, 2 to 6:45 p.m.): will feature prominent speakers such as Olivia Harris (CCO LEVO), Tahira Rehmatullah (former GM of Marley Natural), Barinder Rasode (CEO, NICHE Canada), marijuana maven Irie Selkirk, Brandi Leifso (Evio Beauty Group), Michelle Bilodeau (High, the Collective) and Tokyo Smoke's own Odessa Paloma Parker (Head of Content) and Berkeley Poole (Creative Director). The series will be hosted by Van der Pop founder April Pride, and will be free for 100 women to attend with advance registration here. Speakers will cover topics such as design, fashion and creativity in the cannabis industry, wellness, the medical perspective, and unique challenges and opportunities that female entrepreneurs and employees face in the industry. High, The Collective, a brand–new group formed by Michelle Bilodeau, Sue Kuruvilla, Deanne Moser and Chrissy Roebuck, will co–present the entrepreneur–focused segment, featuring panelists such as Jennifer Newton of Zjuzj (a lifestyle line that creates perfect accoutrements to cannabis) and cannabis advocate Sarah Hanlon (Big Brother Canada 3).

“As a leading Canadian cannabis grower and producer, we are thrilled to promote opportunities to collaborate and encourage communication with our industry peers – always collecting feedback and adapting our products to provide what consumers want. The innovative 'Women & Weed' event and study is exactly why we chose to partner with a company like Van der Pop,” said Bruce Dawson–Scully, CEO of WeedMD. “We need people like April and the Van der Pop team to lead the industry and ensure that everyone has access to accurate, up–to–date information. We applaud initiatives that push the boundaries to ensure there's space and representation for everyone.”

Ritter's Medicareful Platform Expands Online Medicare Enrollment for 2018

HARRISBURG, PA—(Marketwired – October 19, 2017) – Medicareful®, a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)–approved Medicare product comparison website, added six prominent carriers to its online enrollment platform for the 2017–18 Medicare Annual Enrollment Period.

With its latest release, Medicareful now features online enrollment for Aetna Medicare Advantage (MAPD) and prescription drug plans (PDP), Coventry (MAPD), Humana (MAPD), CarePlus (MAPD), Anthem (MAPD and PDP), Amerigroup (MAPD), and Independence Blue Cross (MAPD) plans. These additions join Humana (PDP), SilverScript (PDP), Excellus BlueCross BlueShield (MAPD), and Univera Healthcare (MAPD) as plans available for direct enrollment online.

“With the addition of these carriers, Medicareful has enrollment options for plans which cover 42% of all Medicare beneficiaries that have chosen an MAPD or PDP plan,” Ritter Insurance Marketing President Craig Ritter said. “This greatly increases the utility of this platform for our agents.”

Using a licensed sales agent's unique Medicareful site, Medicare beneficiaries can contact their agent and enroll in select plans. All online enrollments are tied directly to the agent for commission credit.

“Medicareful is designed to enhance every aspect of the agent's workflow: marketing, plan selection, enrollment, and retention. It's much more than a simple enrollment tool,” Ritter said. “Agents can manage all of their referral, lead generation and co–marketing sources through one platform to maximize their customer base. Streamlining the scope of appointment and enrollment processes through Medicareful enhances our agents' effectiveness during the Annual Enrollment Period.”

Through technology developed by Ritter Insurance Marketing, Medicareful validates the agent's certification status, state licenses, and state appointments to ensure compliance with CMS' “ready to sell” regulations. Once this instant validation is complete, a Medicare beneficiary can complete the enrollment process in less than 10 minutes without leaving Medicareful. Agents immediately receive an email confirmation, and the beneficiary also gets a confirmation that their enrollment has been sent to the health plan or Part D sponsor for processing.

Medicareful's revolutionary eSOA is now more powerful than ever for licensed agents. In 2018, CMS relaxed the rules for a Scope of Appointment (SOA), the document that verifies a Medicare beneficiary's consent to a sales appointment from their agent. The new guidelines allow agents to assist their clients from SOA through presentation to enrollment using a single phone call.

Medicareful's eSOA enables contracted agents to compliantly document their Medicare appointments on their website. The electronic copy of the eSOA is retained in the agent's CRM and the agent can electronically sign for submission to any Health Plan or PDP Sponsor that accepts a generic Scope of Appointment.

Medicareful.com is developed and maintained by Ritter Insurance Marketing. Agents contracted to sell select Medicare products through Ritter Insurance Marketing are eligible to receive their own unique Medicareful.com URL at no cost.

Ritter Insurance Marketing, based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, is a national field marketing organization for senior insurance products. With more than 460,000 Medicare policies in force, seven offices, and 160 employees, Ritter Insurance Marketing is a national industry leader in the external marketing and distribution of Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplement, and Medicare Part D plans.

Registration is open now.

Center stage will feature keynote presentations by leaders from the financial services, legal and open source communities:

  • Amber Baldet, Executive Director, Blockchain Program Lead, J.P. Morgan: Quorum: How blockchain is becoming an open source success story for J.P. Morgan

  • John Stecher, Managing Director – Group Head of Open Innovation & Rise, Barclays: Open Source & Innovation Center Success
  • Paul Walker, Technologist & Philanthropist: The Case for Open Source Software, Revisited

Gabriele Columbro, Executive Director, Symphony Software Foundation, said, “As in other industries undergoing digital transformation, open source is fueling the next wave of fintech innovation, above and beyond blockchain. But with disruptive innovation comes great risk, and that's where open standards for APIs and data formats ensure the industry can fully unleash the business value of these technologies. This is why Wall Street needs to figure out an effective engagement strategy for open collaboration. The Foundation is very pleased to host the Open Source Strategy Forum to be a catalyst of this change.”

David Wayne, Managing Director and Head of Electronic Trading and Strategic Analytics at Deutsche Bank, said, “Deutsche Bank contributed code to the Symphony Foundation because we believe that open source collaboration benefits the industry as a whole. Our clients are increasingly seeking flexible open source solutions and collaborating in this way can help us enhance our products and services while reducing costs.”

Paul Walker, Technologist and Philanthropist, said, “The open source software movement is one of the more important and successful examples of collective problem solving that we've seen in our lifetimes. Communicating the benefits of open source effectively to non–technologists — including those in financial services — can be a challenge. I look forward to sharing my experience and my strategies for effective open source advocacy at OSSF.”

The Open Source Strategy Forum is made possible by platinum sponsors BNY Mellon, Black Duck Software, GitHub, NodeSource, and Red Hat, and by gold sponsors Acquia, Flexera, The Open Compute Project Foundation and WhiteSource. Our media partners are The Linux Foundation and Rise New York.

Owl Ventures, EdTech VC, Raises $185M to Lead Education Innovation

SAN FRANCISCO, CA—(Marketwired – October 19, 2017) – Owl Ventures, the leading investor in education technology, announced today that it closed $185 Million for its second fund. The capital will be used to lead investments in education technology startups that are harnessing the new wave of entrepreneurship and innovation across the education spectrum including early childhood, K–12, higher education and career mobility/professional learning.

“The education market is undergoing a massive digital revolution that is impacting the 1.5 billion learners worldwide,” said Tom Costin, Partner at Owl Ventures. “This newfound technology infrastructure and digital adoption of EdTech platforms is now allowing companies to rapidly scale and build products that are being used by millions of students in countries around the world.”

This valuable global LP base and network will help the firm and its companies across numerous functions including distribution, partnerships and deal sourcing.

The firm has been a major investor in many of the fastest growing companies in the EdTech market including Accelerate Learning, DreamBox Learning, Newsela, RaiseMe and Quizlet.

“We seek to partner with transformational companies that are solving large problems in education that have established product market fit and repeatable revenue models,” said Amit Patel, Partner at Owl Ventures. “We play a very active role in helping our portfolio companies accelerate growth and strengthen their teams. We join the board of each portfolio company and consider ourselves embedded team members within the companies we support.”

“Owl's knowledge of the needs of the K–12 and broader EdTech market is unparalleled,” said Matt Gross, Founder and CEO of Newsela. “They share a vision with us and so many of the entrepreneurs that they support: that learning can be thrilling and meaningful, and that teaching can be more effective and satisfying, if the right tools are put in the hands of teachers and students. We are honored to work with them and excited that they'll be supporting the next generation of great education entrepreneurs.”
