I interview the founders of Dauntless, an independent software vendor (ISV) in the cannabis vertical. While the Dauntless solution spans seed to sale for supply chain management and reporting, the firm emphasized its point-of-sale (POS) solution called Korona at RADexpo in Portland, OR. But the secret sauce is GIANT – a global API that connects the cannabis workflow/reporting to the different state’s cannabis control boards (to report inventory, sales, etc.). This interview ends with a basic question – is the cannabis vertical ready for Managed Services Providers (MSPs) to be dauntless?
This month’s check-in with Colorado MSP Blake Schwank allowed us to float a trial balloon about hosting a two-day Cannabis MSP Technology event in the Spring of 2020. Schwank not only endorsed the idea as a good fit in this emerging vertical but also offered content ideas. Our best guess is to hold it in Denver in April 2020 (buy not on April 20th).
