What Are They Talking About?

“We share educational, insightful and inspirational content that ranges from entrepreneur interviews, behind-the-scenes looks into cannabis-related companies, investor insights, innovative product highlights, current events, upcoming trends and more.” – Carlo Desierto, CEO, Cashinbis LLC
How Are They Doing It?
According to Guillermo Bravo, COO of Cashinbis, the team is ‘networking like crazy’ to bring the most useful, educated and productive interviews and reports possible to the industry. Their online publication breaks down the trials, tribulations and successes of cannabis entrepreneurs in a thorough, thought-provoking question and answer format. On the video and podcast side, media host Tim Strombel goes off-the-cuff to provide an intimate, behind the scenes peek into the most difficult industry in America.
“I’ve taken my Navy background and directly applied it to how I run Cashinbis. My staff are my weapons and I deploy them to do what they’re best at, without micromanaging. I believe if you arm your company with the right tools, they can accomplish their objectives while you maintain the overall vision of the mission. I maintain the structure and order that allows us to function like a well oiled machine.” – Carlo Desierto, CEO, Cashinbis LLC
The idea for Cashinbis was born from the mind of Carlo Desierto, while he was watching TV at home. A veteran of both the startup scene and US Navy, Carlo was looking for the next big challenge in his life. It just so happened that one night, while watching the local news, he saw a well-covered story on the cannabis industry. He did nothing. The next night, he saw another great cannabis story, this time on the green rush and cannabis boom. He did nothing. Finally, for a third night in a row, he stumbled across yet another cannabis story. The light bulb switched on.
Carlo grabbed his nearest Forbes magazine and started thinking of ways to enter the cannabis space. Then it hit him. “I’m holding the answer right here,” he said, “I’m going to create the Forbes magazine for the cannabis industry.”
Carlo then recruited two young and passionate entrepreneurs, Guillermo Bravo (COO, Cashinbis LLC) and Erin McDonald (CCO, Cashinbis LLC), to help him build this idea. A year and a half later, Cashinbis has grown from a company of 3 employees, working in a 8×10 ‘janitor’s closet’ (with one desk and two spots on the floor), to a budding digital information superpower in the cannabis world. Their fresh take on ‘the business of cannabis’ is making the pursuit of entrepreneurship in the cannabis industry more accessible and transparent than ever before. And they wouldn’t have it any other way.
The team is very excited about upcoming partnerships, collaborations and industry exclusives that they think will vault them even higher amongst the rankings of cannabis industry mainstays.
“The global cannabis industry is going to grow exponentially over the next ten years. The bigger it gets, the more opportunities there will be for entrepreneurs to enter the space. We will be there to make their transition as easy as possible. Yes, we want to become a goliath in the industry, but we want to do it by helping our content consumers with their own journeys. My goal is to one day interview a famous entrepreneur who will say ‘you know, before I got into the industry I read Cashinbis entrepreneur interviews, listened to the podcasts and watched your videos. It really made me a better professional.’ Nothing would make me happier.” – Carlo Desierto, CEO, Cashinbis LLC
