Company's Bio (Pitch Deck): Cannabis Big Data empowers licensed & ancillary businesses to earn more & stress less with intuitive & actionable data insights.
Cannabis Big Data began in the summer of 2016 after 3 months of talking to cannabis businesses and hearing about their frustrations and challenges managing a fragmented software landscape and all their valuable, but inaccessible, data. In line with the lean methodology, before we wrote a single line of code, we signed two alpha contracts to validate we found a monetizable market pain point. Over and over, we saw first-hand how cannabis businesses & organizations were losing time, money & energy with fragmented and disconnected software, hardware, & spreadsheets.
Since that first fateful summer, we completed the CanopyBoulder accelerator program, raised our Series Seed round, and launched the industry's most integrative and comprehensive data toolkit. Now, we have over 30 modules that plug into any software or hardware source and then connect the data dots with simple, intuitive, & actionable insights. Cannabis Big Data's toolkit includes ingestion, data warehousing, predictive modeling, machine learning, & algorithmic matching.
