We’re thrilled to announce our Series A investment in Flowhub, the market-leading retail platform for cannabis dispensaries.

Running a successful cannabis dispensary shouldn’t be rocket science! But for thousands of small businesses across our country, running a compliant, profitable, and customer-centric dispensary can be mind-numbingly complex.

Like most retailers, dispensaries want to laser-focus on providing the best customer service and offering the best merchandise.

But behind the scenes, the headaches of seed-to-sale inventory tracking, pricing, reporting to the state, merchandising, tax compliance, payments, and eCommerce delivery are, unfortunately, quite challenging. And in the cannabis market, a single regulatory or compliance misstep can be fatal for a dispensary.

That’s where Flowhub comes in. Flowhub is the central nervous system of a modern cannabis dispensary — and the platform ensures that a dispensary runs compliantly, profitably, and delivers special moments to its customers. As one happy Flowhub customer told us, “we think of [our shop] as [providing] a Disneyland-like experience.”

In Flowhub, we saw a tremendous vertical software business fundamentally reshaping the way that legal cannabis retail is done. This converged with strong market tailwinds (cannabis will be $66B industry by 2025) and a mission-driven leader in Founder & CEO Kyle Sherman, who has been on the cutting-edge of cannabis legislation in Colorado and nationally.

We are happy to support the company’s mission, and I am thrilled to join Flowhub’s Board of Directors and partner with Kyle, the remarkable Flowhub team, and our friends at Poseidon and Evolv Ventures.
