The founder and CEO of L.A. Creative Technologies share insights as feet on the street including cannabis deliveries door-to-door in the pandemic shutdown. The key is that the cannabis vertical has been declared an essential service and Weiss hits is head-on. Watch this interview HERE. PS – Weiss talks about the online cannabis virtual meetups and resulting podcasts.
Our analyst Josh Weiss speaks towards some primary research he completed to create a list of cannabis business entities in Southern California that might benefit from his managed services provider (MSP) proactive. He scanned the “Built in LA” that is a site to help startups promote themselves and help people find jobs. Then he built a list of cannabis-related companies and he engaged in basic dark web scanning to detect technology vulnerabilities such as plain text passwords.
One of contributors, Josh Weiss (an MSP at LA Creative), fancies himself a firmly affixed in the California cannabis vertical. He is and has earned that reputation because he is out there doing it. The past year Weiss started attending cannabis investment meetups and made four presentations. In 2020 he’ll be engaged with a cannabis co-worker space (talk about creative). First off – a focus on cybersecurity. “We’re putting ourselves out there.” Weiss shared in the interview. Spoiler alert – look for a second cannabis co-worker space in 2020 as well. One take away – you can make money as a Cannabis MSP without touching the flower but supporting the ecosystem. Another takeaway: focus only on ONE cannabis meetup – don’t try to go to every meetup. Weiss is gunning to go to MJBizCon in Las Vegas in mid-December.
