This software has been in development for the last two years and is set to make a significant impact in the sector of cannabis cultivation tech. The software will provide mutual benefits for both the growers and retailers who use their platform.
Christopher and Hilart started their entrepreneurship journey at the beginning of 2014, at the early ages of 19 years old. Initially, they launched their business as a general web development and marketing firm, running the business from their bedrooms. They locked in one of the largest dispensaries in Southern California, building the dispensary website, very quickly they realized the cannabis industry had a huge void and believed they could help. They changed their focus to catering to cannabis businesses and began providing design services to dispensaries and delivery services in California and very quickly they saw the growth of their startup which started to open up many new opportunities and ideas on what they could offer the industry.
