What made you decide to enter the cannabis industry? The team at the Blinc Group, I used to work with the founders before Blinc was 'born'
Fun fact that we haven't asked.... I spent 5 years of my childhood in Madagascar, out of which 6 months me and my family lived in the jungle on a villa with pineapples, bananas and papayas growing in the back yard and 2 hours driving away from anything remotely reminding civilization - best memories
Quality control and compliance were our most important factors for choosing a hardware designer, producer and supplier. Blinc was chosen over others considered based on their reputation and experience for these key factors.
A team of rockstars across the board, from brand realignment to product development to training and support - big thank you!!!
The integrity of that medicine starts with the hardware that is used to deliver it and we knew that partnering with the Blinc Group was the best way to provide that kind of quality and reliability to our patients.
Working with Blinc Group was a completely seamless experience. Our team is very particular and detail-oriented, but Blinc was able to walk us through all our questions and queries to create a product we are stoked about.
The Blinc Group's unmatched customer service and supply chain diligence give us the peace of mind needed to provide our patients and customers with a quality product.
You guys are the best! Keep up the great work! We look forward to working more with Blinc as our hardware partner!
We could not be happier with our choice to work with The Blinc Group, and look forward to continue innovating with them in the future.
