007 - Socrates Rosenfeld, CEO & Co-Founder, Jane Technologies

Socrates Rosenfeld, Co-Founder & CEO of Jane Technologies, shares with us how Grape Jolly Ranchers, The Allman Brothers Band, and Love, all inspired him. This West Point Graduate, Apache Pilot, and MIT Graduate made a big pivot in creating Cannabis Tech startup Jane Technologies. Today they are the Largest Retail eCommerce Platform in Cannabis, creating a the new retail for dispensaries, their patients and customers. Here is his Journey. This episode was recorded on March 18th, 2020. In the US, major cities like San Francisco and New York were starting to mandate business closures and social distancing in the early, uncertain days of the COVID-19 Pandemic. We touched on that throughout the interview, but not not stated explicitly. I found the interview to be both timely and timeless; I hope you feel the same.

In researching the Cannabis Industry, largely because of its Federal status and history in the US, he was fascinated in seeing what the entrepreneurs were building. With his experience as an entrepreneur, supporting entrepreneurship, some background in broadcast radio, and a love for amazing medium of podcasts (especially "How I built this" by Guy Raz); all converged to create the spark moment that spawned Lit Up Founders.
