At Plug In South LA, we know the talent exists locally and is ready to be harvested and cultivated.  That said, we’re excited to announce that Ron Johnson, South LA resident and Co-Founder of Grolens,  has secured a $100K in seed funding from Mucker Capital.  Ron is a recent participant in Plug-In South LA’s lunch and learn series.  He was also featured in Complex New’s recap of our Urban Tech Connect conference this past May.

We’re incredibly excited a Founder from and in South Los Angeles is developing traction with his SAAS based platform to help Cannabis growers efficiently manage and monetize their inventories.

This is the early beginning of tech in South Los Angeles and communities like it.

The fundraising journey is not an easy path for those Founders that don’t fit the stereotypical profile of what a successful entrepreneur looks like (the journey is tough even for those who do) but we’re excited to share in Ron’s accomplishment.

We know there are more announcements in the works and excited about Grolen’s journey to continue to raise funds and grow market share.

Founders: Sign up to present at our Lunch and Learn series.  Join the Plug In South LA Community.

PISLA Community: Get involved with Plug-In South LA. Help us foster and support Founders who look like Ron and come from communities like South Los Angeles.
