What Sky Island Consulting does - Sky Island Consulting offers clients unparalleled access to the legal cannabis industry in the most risk averse manner possible by putting these investors in unique opportunities only available through our company's contacts and expertise. We specialize in matching entrepreneurs with the best opportunities the industry has to offer. Sky Island Consulting is currently developing several projects including consulting for legal cultivation facilities and dispensaries as well as development of cutting-edge technologies aimed at modernizing the cannabis dispensary experience for consumers and effective product management for dispensary operators. The purpose of today’s confernece call is to outline one-of-a-kind canna-business opportunities never before seen in California.

Who we are: We are experts in the medical cannabis industry and have been actively involved as consultants in the legal cannabis industry for nearly a decade and have also furthered the industry through millions of dollars in charitable donations and funding of educational campaigns.

Here is a summary of our team. Our CEO, John Abraham has over 15 years of working experience in the media industry. John has a quantifiable track record of success building, training and running national sales organizations from the ground up and additional experience in running campaign management teams and supporting marketing departments. Some examples of John’s successes include launching the ecommerce site for Columbia House on Yahoo and assisting Netflix and Dollar Shave Club with the launch of a cost per action (CPA) campaign using targeted and contextual marketing techniques to gain subscribers. John’s experience in the legal cannabis industry includes consulting for a number of dispensaries and cultivation facilities regarding marketing and sales efforts and logistics of POS transaction systems.

Our Chief Operations Officer, Jaime Ortega, has extensive qualifications and experience in computer data system architecture, data mining, analytics, software and hardware design, and has assisted in the setup of over 100 cultivation facilities and dispensaries spanning the states of Arizona, California, Oregon, and Colorado. Besides being an industry consultant he is an industry enthusiast and understands the landscape of the industry and its challenges on an expert basis.

I am an industry enthusiast and have participated as a consultant in California since 2006. I am an industry advocate and have donated over $2 million to industry related charities such as Drug Policy Alliance, Americans for Safe Access, Marijuana Policy Project, and Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. I am currently acting as Chief Technology Officer at Sky Island Consulting. I am the inventor of three issued patents, one of which is a seed to sale POS system that tracks inventory and transactions occurring at cannabis dispensaries and cultivation facilities. I, as well as our team have been interviewed and positively featured in news outlets including, the Wall Street Journal, CNBC, FOX News, Bloomberg Businessweek, BBC, and many others. We have helped hundreds of entrepreneurs spanning 8 states nationwide with their dreams of jumping into this dynamic industry. We have made many a millionaire over the last 10 years, including ourselves. We have done so ethically and honestly and amidst unbelievable scrutiny while operating within an industry that is still federally tolerated but not fully condoned. Even the Federal Government has publicly stated in writing that if industry participants are following their local and state laws, they will not seek to intervene and will not enforce federal law. This recent shift along with California’s newly adopted laws as of 2016 (Medical Cannabis Regulations and Safety Act (MCRSA), allow for safe harbor to entrepreneurs looking to finally participate within this burgeoning industry in California.

If you would like more information regarding this event or about our services please phone Jaime Ortega direct at 866-591-7802.
