The legalization wave of cannabis has bred a wealth of opportunities for entrepreneurs that are positioned to capitalize on a previously untapped market. Sitting at the intersection of technology and cannabis is Ryan G. Smith, the Cofounder and CEO of LeafLink. At its core, LeafLink is a marketplace for cannabis brands, distributors, and retailers to connect, manage, and market their businesses. By focusing on the B2B aspect of cannabis, LeafLink is shrewdly positioned as an infrastructure play without the complexities associated with nascent industries. Smith, a serial entrepreneur with two previous exits on his resume, sold his previous financial relationship management software company to publicly traded company. His first exit came for EcoCampus while he was in college at Colgate University. Under Smith's leadership, LeafLink has recently been recognized by Fast Company's as one of the Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Enterprise as well as The Forbes 30 Under 30 as the first cannabis company ever to be honored. The company is backed by prominent investors including Lerer Hippeau and Snoop Dogg's Casa Verde Capital.
