Think big and then chase your dream passionately. Jahan Peston, founder of BOHEMCO, a company that plans to use Cannabis for various commercial uses speaks about how he and his six friends decided to build this business. He introduces the audience to the many facets of a single commodity, cannabis in this case. His talk revolves around how perspective defines the order. A chaos may be order for some but may be a troublesome puzzle for others. To decide is one's choice.
Originally of Australian descent, Jahan leads the strategy and collaborations function at Bombay Hemp Company (BOHECO) by identifying viable stakeholders in the hemp ecosystem that share BOHECO’s vision and develop strategic partnerships and collaborations to exponentially scale impact. He is also the focal point of BOHECO’s communications. Before co-founding BOHECO, Jahan helped set up start- up companies and social enterprises such as one of Mumbai’s first walking tour companies-having conducted tours for over 5000 people in 4 years. These have enabled him to bring intriguing insights on successful scaling of early stage businesses. As such, Jahan also plays an important role in developing growth strategies and raising capital for BOHECO.
