Arizona Daily Star – Two Women Canna-preneurs Talk The Challenges, Rewards Of Getting Into the Marijuana Industry
With March being Women’s History Month, I figured it was a great time to talk to two of the most successful women canna-preneurs I’ve come across in my time reporting on the industry, to get their stories and perspectives about what challenges and barriers women still face in breaking into cannabis.
My first conversation is with Anna-Sophia Kouparanis, the co-founder of Bloomwell — one of Germany’s largest medical marijuana companies — who was named one of Forbes Magazine’s 30 Under 30 in the cannabis industry last year.
I follow that up with another interview, this time with Kim Sanchez Rael, the co-founder and CEO of Azuca, a New Mexico and New York-based company that produces fast-acting cannabis edible technology.
Both interviews dive into the back-stories of each subject, with Kouparanis detailing how her family got into cannabis and Rael recounting how past business ventures and start-up experience helped forge her path.
The episode also focuses on how the cannabis industry as a whole can be more inviting and open to women and what each subject is doing to make that a reality.
