For entrepreneurs and investors who are keeping tabs on the nascent cannabis industry, staying informed about the state of the legalization movement is extremely important. To serve this need, Ganjapreneur, a website dedicated to cannabis business news and culture, has recently upgraded their mobile app for Android and Apple devices with several new features and news categories.
The app originally launched in fall 2014, only a few months after the site itself announced its presence on Ganjapreneur.com. Built as a news reader which also contains business listings, job openings, and interviews with prominent business owners and cannabis experts, the Ganjapreneur app’s user base grew quickly and it gains an increasing number of users on a daily business.
“In such a volatile market, if you’re an investor — or thinking of investing — staying informed is critical. Our app aggregates relevant news articles and editorials from around the web, and new content is posted throughout the day,” said Noel Abbott, Ganjapreneur’s CTO.
One of the new features is a section for videos from Ganjapreneur’s YouTube Channel, where they recently published an interview with NORML founder Keith Stroup, which was recorded during the High Times Cannabis Cup in Denver, Colorado. Another feature is an expanded job list, which links daily to job openings that are posted on all of the internet’s leading cannabis industry job boards.
Ganjapreneur has also recently begun to monetize their website and mobile app, listing several sponsorship opportunities designed for B2B cannabis products and services.
“There aren’t a lot of great resources out there for the professional audience in this industry, and a lot of the outlets that have popped up have shot themselves in the foot by focusing too hard on the get-rich-quick mentality of some who are pursuing opportunities in legalized cannabis,” Abbott said. “Our goal is to be business-focused while staying relevant to the unique identities of the pioneers and activists who got us to where we are today. These are the people who built this industry, and we want to help them grow and succeed.”
Ganjapreneur launched in July 2014 and has since established a significant presence in the cannabis business world. The website regularly publishes interviews and commentary from leading minds in the industry, and has also launched a B2B business directory, a live feed of job listings from marijuana job boards, a domain name marketplace for start-ups and venture capital firms, and a mobile app for Apple and Android devices which aggregates daily cannabis industry news, business profiles, and other information.
