Fast Company just announced its 2018 rankings of the Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Enterprise, honoring leading companies like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) as well as rising newcomers that exemplify the best in business and innovation.
LeafLink, the leading marketplace for wholesale cannabis, was named to this year's list, becoming the first company in the cannabis industry to receive the honorable distinction for "passing Salesforce-like tools to cannabis businesses."
This ranking from Fast Company comes on the heels of an extremely successful year for the startup, including expansion into its sixth state, a $10 million Series A funding round, and breaking $300M in annual orders through the platform. In 2018, it will launch in its 15th state and build a variety of new features to serve its growing client base of over 450 cannabis brands and 2000 retailers.
"We're excited to join the ranks of world-class software platforms that are revolutionizing the way companies grow their businesses," said Ryan G. Smith, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of LeafLink. "This gets to the core of our mission at LeafLink: defining how the cannabis industry scales by creating enterprise tools that rival those found in any other multi-billion dollar industry."
Zach Silverman, LeafLink's co-founder and Chief Technical Officer, said of the accolade, "LeafLink is proud to represent the rapidly growing cannabis industry on Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies list. It demonstrates that as part one of the few markets born in a time of technology, cannabis companies are embracing innovative, enterprise-level software to build one of the most efficient, transparent, and compliant industries of our time."
We'll be sure to keep an eye on LeafLink from across Broad Street as it continues to innovate within the rapidly growing cannabis space.
