We’re excited to announce that Kannaway was officially named Small Business Company of the Year in the Life Sciences, Health, Wellness, and Nutrition category by the Business Intelligence Group's 2019 BIG Awards for Business.
Kannaway CEO Blake Schroeder was even named Small Business Executive of the Year in the same category. This award honors Blake’s efforts in growing Kannaway's revenue more than 60 times since joining the executive team.
The purpose of the Business Intelligence Group's 2019 BIG Awards for Business is to recognize products, people, and organizations that are leading their respective industries. The group’s proprietary scoring system evaluates performance across multiple business domains and then rewards those companies whose achievements stand out from the competition.
With Kannaway being the first direct-selling company to bring CBD products to both the U.S. and European markets, the company was acknowledged for its international advocacy efforts for CBD access and education. Kannaway also experienced an increase of nearly 200% in revenue over 2017 revenue, with the majority of its success due to its European operations.
"2019 was a banner year for revenue growth at the company, especially in our international operations, and we are proud to continue to be a pioneer for the industry in educating new markets about hemp-based CBD,” said Blake.
MJNA CEO Dr. Stuart Titus added "Awards like these continue to boost our reputation as a category leader and set a standard of professionalism that we wish to impart upon the entire industry."
