“I sent them an article, Vangst raises $2.5M from a Tier 1 VC in New York, and people started to not laugh at me as much.”

People Started to Not Laugh at Me as Much
- I know so little about the cannabis industry and I have some internal tension around appreciating an industry that I’ve long judged as a net negative to society. Still the cannabis (marijuana) industry is real and not going anywhere. When Karson suggested a ProCO360 episode I thought about it... it had been quite some time since I did an episode featuring Native Roots (“Not What I Planned in College”) and intrigued with Vangst’s hiring niche, I investigated. I saw that Vangst raised money at a valuation of almost $100 million, and that really caught my attention. I loved this revealing conversation with a high-energy entrepreneur!
