Today, our host Anne Donohoe is talking with Andrea Brooks, Founder and CEO of Sava, an e-commerce company delivering cannabis to the larger Bay Area.
Andrea is a cannabis advocate, lobbyist for social change, and an entrepreneur with a passion for health and wellness. Following a disabling injury in which cannabis played a crucial role in her recovery, she was inspired to advocate for the plant and build solutions in the space. Since then she’s built Sava into a highly curated cannabis e-commerce company delivering to the larger Bay Area. Under her stewardship, Sava has grown from 1 to 50 employees, expanded its product offering to more than 70 brands and 750 SKUs, and experienced 10X growth in revenue.
Anne chats with Andrea about the founding and growth of Sava, what its been like for her within the industry as a queer woman, and the impact she hopes to have on the industry as a whole.
Now sit back, lean forward and enjoy the show!
