CannaKorp Raises $5.7 Million In 2016

MASSACHUSETTS: CannaKorp, makers of the world’s first single-use, pod-based cannabis vaporizing system, announced today that it has successfully closed its Series A round of funding. The company raised a total of $4.1 million on a goal of $4 million. According to a company release, CannaKorp has now raised a total of $5.7 million in 2016, including a seed round earlier in the year that was also oversubscribed ($1.6M raised), making the company one of the most well-funded startups in the cannabis industry.

“Successfully oversubscribing both our seed and Series A rounds of funding demonstrates the confidence our expanding network of investors has in CannaKorp, and more broadly, in the rapidly growing cannabis industry,” said James Winokur, CannaKorp Co-Founder & CEO. “The excitement and momentum continues to build, providing a powerful tailwind for us as we go to market,” Winokur continued.

The funds raised will be used for manufacturing, enabling cultivator and dispensary partners, as well as go-to-market activities such as launching the CannaCloud™ in select markets later this year. The company’s rolling launch plan will bring the CannaCloud system to multiple states and cities in North America throughout 2017.
