WeCannect is a first of its kind discovery and networking platform for cannabis businesses, connecting brands, cultivators, dispensaries and ancillary businesses through an online community purpose-built for the cannabis industry. WeCannect provides a platform for cannabis businesses to showcase their brands and create meaningful industry relationships.
While attending an industry tradeshow for Green Tank in 2016, Corey Koffler, CEO of WeCannect, along with his business partner Dustin Koffler, realized how difficult it was for cannabis businesses to connect and network with one another outside of tradeshows. To add to the problem, plant-touching companies are prohibited from using traditional marketing channels to advertise. Inspired by the tradeshow, WeCannect was born with the goal of creating an online community for cannabis businesses to connect and network with one another on a daily basis and showcase their brands and products without ever having to leave the office.
One year later, on November 1, 2017, WeCannect went live. In just four months, it has attracted more than 500 brands, cultivators, dispensaries and other ancillary businesses from around the world who are using the platform to connect with one another and streamline sales and marketing efforts.
As the platform grows, WeCannect will continue to develop new features and functionalities for the website, while offering valuable insight to users such as data and analytics.
“As the number of cannabis businesses continues to grow, and with limited access to traditional marketing channels, WeCannect is primed to be the meeting place for the cannabis industry.” – Corey Koffler, CEO of WeCannect
