Aeron Sullivan, the 29-year-old CEO of the online cannabis firm Tradiv, has been named one of Inc. magazine’s “30 Under 30” for 2016.
The upstart company, based in southern California, does most of its business currently in Colorado, where more than 230 marijuana companies use Tradiv’s online wholesale platform to buy and sell cannabis. According to the company, roughly $1 million in cannabis is bought and sold each month on its website.
In its citation, Inc. said Tradiv “is replacing the old street-dealer aspects of the marijuana economy.”
Sullivan raised more than $1 million last year to help fuel the company’s growth. He’s also an alumni of CanopyBoulder, a well-known marijuana-centric business accelerator in Colorado.
