Cy Scott, Co-Founder & CEO, Headset

Catching the entrepreneurial drive early, Cy Scott's first venture was selling Jolly Ranchers on the school bus back in 5th grade. This funded his love of playing video games at his family's store, seeding an early interest in Entrepreneurship and Technology. In the nascent days of the Modern Cannabis Industry, Cy Co-Founded Cannabis Education Site Leafly back in 2010. Starting as a side hustle, Cy and his co-founders grew the company to market success and a successful exit in 2015. Cy, and fellow Leafly co-founders then moved on to start Headset, an industry leading Cannabis Business Intelligence provider.
