Cannacter, the cannabis network, was founded in 2018 in a West Seattle studio apartment by cannabis advocates and cloud computing consultants Steffo Mitakides, Josh Sordelet and Joerg Joergensen. They founded Cannacter to level the playing field for both farmers and retailers and make it easier to buy and sell wholesale cannabis products. The Cannacter team curates the best cannabis products and works with the best farms and retailers in Washington. Their motto is "Let farmers be farmers!" They are advocates for small, family-owned farms and want to keep “Big Weed” out of Washington.
Having founded Cornerstate Distribution in 2016, Steffo has worked with some of the best cannabis Farmer/Producers in Washington and seen the inefficiencies in the sales process first-hand. Upon obtaining funding from Google Cloud in late 2017, he, Josh and Joerg began to develop the industry’s first B2B online marketplace featuring a reverse auction. They created Cannacter to build a community where farmers earn a fair price and retailers get the best available cannabis products.
For retailers, the Cannacter platform gives better access to exceptional producer/
Cannacter plans to grow into Oregon and California in 2020.
