Kushy Punch is an award-winning cannabis company that was founded in 2014 in Southern California. Its founder and chief executive officer is Ruben Cross. He had been cultivating marijuana before deciding to build a brand that produces gummies, capsules, oil dispensers, tincture, full spectrum oil, and vapes. Beyond California, Kushy Punch sells products in Michigan, Arizona, and Nevada. When it began selling products in Michigan, they ran through their entire initial production in fewer than four hours.
Ruben Cross gave credit to Exclusive Brands for this sales success. He said this company was critical to the success of Kushy Punch selling its award-winning gummy products in that state. Cross is especially excited to enter the Nevada market with its infused gummy products. This is because Las Vegas is a destination for travelers from around the world. This will help Kushy Punch become an internationally recognized brand. The focus is on producing the world’s highest quality gummies that feature all-natural flavors and colors. Its production of these is of pharmaceutical manufacturing grade.
Kushy Punch is dedicated to building a community. Its ethos is to help create a world in which nobody is poor or hungry. It also seeks to create a world in which people can work together in healthy communities. There are several options for their gummies. There is a small dose one, which is 100mg with Sativa. For those who are experienced with edibles, there is a 200mg option. There is also 60mg CBD and a blend called Recover. These are for people who want the healing effects of marijuana without generating too much of a high.
Peter Briger and the other two Alumni of Princeton University started what we may call a gift to the entrepreneurs who share the Alma mater. These distinguished business moguls established the Alumni Entrepreneurs Fund (AEF), which contains funds that support the recent alumni entrepreneurs of the University. AEF program uplift them and their startup companies. When the Princeton Entrepreneurship Advisory Committee (PEAC) was appraising AEF, they described the program to be that will fulfill the educational mission of the University. PEAC said it would equip the beneficiaries with knowledge on risk-taking and establishing good organizations.
They also emphasized the need to train the minds of these new entrepreneurs to be creative, innovative, and to conceive impactful ideas. Peter Briger and his fellows devoted up to $100,000 to support the business ideas. Provost David highlighted that the bred entrepreneurs would be a great motivation for the learners since they will return to the University to share their success stories. He adds that they will be very crucial role models, for they will enlighten others. The chairperson of PEAC, Mung Chiang, said that sharing is part of the entrepreneurship education program to inspire these students. For one to qualify into the program, they must be recent graduates of Princeton University and has graduated not more than five years from the time of receiving the funds.
A panel that consists of six Alumni entrepreneurs reviews their proposals to initiate the mentorship process and then links them with successful alumni entrepreneurs in their respective business fields. Already the panel has selected the first four teams to do a pilot program. These teams include the founders of Kudzoo: Trevor Wilkins ’13 and Logan Cohen and Julia Macalaster ’12 and David Lamer, who cofounded PreeLine. Also, the CEO and COO of Friendsy, Vaidhy ’15 and Michael Prinsky ’15 and Maisie Devine ’11 and Isaac Rothernbaum, who are the CEO and CTO of Poacht respectively, were selected. Peter Briger congratulates the positive response of the University to embrace the program and believes that the students will be introduced to the outside business world. Currently, Peter Briger is the principal and chair of the Fortress Investment Group since 2002.
