Doers 018 – Ryan Smith & Zach Silverman on Launching a Cannabis Software Company, Hiring, and Fundraising Venture Capital

Zach Silverman and Ryan Smith are the cofounders of LeafLink, a software platform connecting cannabis dispensaries to vendors across the United States. They just raised $3MM to grow the company in new markets and expand their team. Both Zach and Ryan have multiple startups under their belts. They join me to discuss what it is like to be working in this…budding…new industry, what their clients are like (spoiler: mostly just businesspeople and people who want to do good through their work), misconceptions of working with this industry, and what it is like to raise money from institutional investors.

All episodes of Doers are produced by Lacey Peace.
