Full birth name: Olivia Alexander
Title: CEO & Founder
Company: Kush Queen
Years at current company: 5 years
Education profile: College Dropout (Loyal Marymount University)
Most successful professional accomplishment before cannabis:
Since the age of 2, I was a professional actress appearing in countless television shows, commercials, and films.
Company Mission: The four pillars of Kush Queen that define our mission are innovation, equality, transparency, and quality.
Company’s most successful achievement:
We’ve had a lot of moments at Kush Queen, but the most successful achievement is that we started the company with $0. In the cannabis industry, it is very rare to meet a company like Kush Queen and some days how we began truly blows our mind more than anything else. When you start with nothing, it changes everything.
Has the company raised any capital (yes or no):
If so, how much?: We did a small round of $400K 2 years ago during the first year of legalization in California.
Any plans on raising capital in the future?
We are in this for the long haul, so we are taking our time to organically grow our business and build a strong foundation that starts with our audience. Eventually, we will explore a capital raise.
Most important company 5-year goal: For Kush Queen, our greatest goal is to innovate. So many companies are large, which can make it extremely difficult to move quickly with new technology and innovation. Being a small team allows us to do things other companies cannot, so our biggest goal is to continue to be on the forefront and create products that are the first in the space. In 5 years we hope to have our full line of psychoactive and non-psychoactive cannabis-infused cosmetics.
