It’s exciting to imagine being part of this advisory board and contributing to their ambitious plans. They are smart, informed, and connected in ways that few in this burgeoning industry are, and understand what it takes to help client companies attract top talent, build organizational competency, raise capital, and ultimately build and grow successful companies. Shortly, I believe the best companies in the cannabis industry will work with Viridian.”
