History of the founders
Like most disruptive technologies, the co-founders, software engineer Walter Moore and physicist Charles Cherqui, founded CHT when they ran into their own set of obstacles. While launching their own cannabis business and social equity incubatorCollection farmsthe application process was not only daunting, but most applicants were set up for rejection from the start, even in states whose laws include restorative justice elements.
“Generally, the experience of applying for a commercial cannabis license for a small business or everyday start-up entrepreneur has been a convoluted and daunting process,” Charles Cherqui, co-founder and director of business development told Benzinga. “There are hundreds of pages of confusing legal documents, not to mention a ton of different regulations and compliance standards to sift through. Prior to CHT, consulting and templates cost candidates over $150,000, and many candidates would be forced to drop out before they even started.
This inspired them to create CHT Accelerator, which uses artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to streamline the process of building a competitive app. The software automates redundant processes, allowing candidates to submit without running out of material or making other common mistakes.
“With the CHT Accelerator, we wanted to open our toolkit to a wider pool of entrepreneurs, allowing the average candidate to compete effectively against large enterprises and MSOs,” Walter Moore, co-founder, chief executive and chief technology officer of CHT, told Benzinga. “Our goal is to help pave the way for more representative ownership within the cannabis industry at all levels.”
