Tech breaks into cannabis and intern.club joins Clubhouse
Vince Ning from Nabis talks about combining a personal passion with his profession. If that isn't enough, get ready for our debut on Clubhouse on March 2nd at 9 pm EST.
Over the past decade, the cannabis industry has evolved more than any other. It’s no longer just what you smell in college dorm rooms or concerts. Now, it’s an entire career path. It began with one state legalizing it recreationally. Then two. Now with more and more states following suit, an entirely new industry has opened up, and pun intended, is blossoming. With a new industry comes new players. And with new and more players, comes more competition in the market. One of those competitors? Nabis, led by founders Vince Ning and Jun Lee.
Nabis plays in the B2B cannabis space in California and helps other cannabis companies with their logistics and fulfillment, financial services, and consulting. This week on the intern.club podcast, we got to chat with Vince Ning about his journey and how he turned what was a personal passion into his profession. Being one of the early players in the space, Vince and Nabis have been able to build an entirely new supply chain and industry from scratch, skipping passed all the preconceived notions or conventions. What does this mean for interns and new grads? That it’s nearly impossible for anyone to have senior level experience in this industry - so there’s plenty of room for growth, if you want it.
Talent and persistence win every time - even in the cannabis space. It’s a great industry for anyone coming out of college looking to apply their tech or product skillset. Nabis is looking for people just like that. Who are willing to get their hands dirty and take on a new challenge. As the industry grows rapidly, they’re doing the same. Meaning they’re looking to bring on interns and new hires from all over the board - from software engineering to product management, to operations, strategy, and finance. If you didn’t think you had a spot in a cannabis company, think again. Go ahead and reach out to Nabis at email@example.com or check out their openings on their website.
Find out what working at Nabis is like on the intern.club podcast on Apple Podcasts or Spotify, and what type of cool company perks you get. Hint hint: they have plenty of office snacks for a reason.
intern club joins the club - clubhouse, that is
If you haven’t heard already, here’s your chance to get in on what’s been blowing up on the internet and in your social circles. Clubhouse combines the best attributes of podcasting with hopping on a conference call. Why has it seen such rocket-like growth? Well, it’s quite an exclusive social network. The only way you can join in on the fun is by being referred by a friend.
What’s even more exciting? We’re kicking off intern.club’s Clubhouse debut this Tuesday, March 2, at 9 pm EST. For our first room, we’ll be talking with Contrary Captial - a venture fund dedicated to finding the best early-career engineers, designers, and product minds to connect them with a close-knit support community. Contrary will walk us through what it takes to be a company they invest in, and what they like to see in founders. They’re focused on developing founders not only straight out of school but for the entirety of their careers. So you know they have some experience working with some awesome people in awesome companies. That’s enough on Contrary for now - you’ll just have to join us on Clubhouse on Tuesday at 9 pm EST.
