CannaBuild, a Denver, CO-based technology startup which aims to enhance the customer experience in cannabis by building an online budtending experience, raised $225K in seed funding.
Backers included investors sourced The ArcView Group.
Co-founded by Zach Marburger, CEO, and Timothy Skaggs, CTO, CannaBuild provides a cloud-based platform that gives dispensary operations the ability to serve their customers from wherever, whenever on any device. App users will be able to initiate sessions (anonymously if desired) with budtenders based on specific questions related to symptoms and strains. Based on the advice given a user can reserve products for in-store pick up at their desired time. Sessions will be available via traditional chat, text, and video chat.
The company’s advisory team includes leading cannabis figures Ean Seeb & Denver Relief Consulting (Denver Relief, Chairman National Cannabis Industry Association), who will serve as head industry advisors, and Chris Gilder, CEO of Meridian Kiosks, who will lend guidance in self-service software development.
