Changing the scene of cannabis industry:

Canix has the power to change the way the cannabis industry works. The cannabis sector requires a lot of data entry as the companies need to submit a lot of paperwork which is very time consuming and costly.

“I first started Canix when I was consulting for a Bay Area cannabis company. I began looking at Metrc, and I was very surprised to find that growers were writing down barcodes on paper. That was when the initial idea for Canix came about,” said Stacey Hronowski, co-founder and CEO of Canix in a statement.

The startup had also raised US$ 1.5M funding in a seed round from Floret Ventures, Yleana Venture Partners, Altair VC, Mava Ventures, Nano LLC, and Andrew Freedman. After winning TechCrunch’s Battlefield, many new doors of opportunities will open for Canix.
