Conversations In Cannabis: Barry Saik – CEO Of Greenbits

Barry sat down with us to talk everything from consumption to capital

Welcome to another episode of Conversations in Cannabis where we talk to the biggest names in the cannabis industry.

Greenbits CEO Barry Saik is no stranger to technology. Having spent most of his career at fintech giant Intuit, the company that makes products such as TurboTax and Mint, he then repositioned himself as Senior VP and GM of Telephony at GoDaddy where he helped their biz-dev product offerings. Now, Barry has left the traditional technology market behind to take the reigns at Greenbits, one of the leading cannabis point of sale systems available on the market today.

I sat down with Barry to discuss everything from why he left the traditional fintech space for the cannabis industry to the future of point of sale.
