Ep 1. Budsy
In this inaugural episode of Startup Stories, Priscilla Seelan sits down with Majyd Hassan, the co-founder of Budsy which caters to an exponential demand for recreational cannabis after the legalisation of it in certain states, like Los Angeles. Majyd shares with us the unique challenges faced by a start-up operating in an industry that is subjected to intense stigma and a long history of criminalisation. From the strict regulations surrounding advertising to investors who are wary of investing into the industry, the co-founder of Budsy is here to bare it all.
