Many of us harbor a dream of being a successful entrepreneur one day. A dream that involves running our own business and essentially being our own boss. However, not all of us are able to make that dream a reality.
But there are a few who manage to start not one, but several businesses and become a force to reckon with in their industry space. One such man is Mr. Aviv Hadar – Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Oregrown Industries. Oregrown is Oregon’s premier farm-to-table cannabis company. They grow organic, indoor cannabis. In addition, they also offer a specially curated selection of top shelf, organic flowers from a handful of other leading Oregon cultivators. The USP of Oregrown is that their customers know exactly what they are ingesting, who and where it came from and how it was made.
Starting and making Oregrown a huge success is but one facet of this successful entrepreneur who loves the outdoors. This outspoken business honcho is a decade long investor in the world’s largest tech company and comes from a background in digital communications and technology. Mr. Hadar was also a founding member of the world’s first million-dollar kickstarter campaign, which saw over 12,000 backers pledge nearly $1.5 million dollars to bring an innovative smartphone product to life!
Think Brilliant Media Studios is yet another feather in the cap of Mr. Hadar. He started this web design company in August 2007 and ever since, it has continued to generate revenue for shareholders and owners. Think Brilliant started out providing design and development services, but as time passed, they quickly grew and began developing their own in-house products. This award-winning software and technology company devised the viral “I’m With Coco” campaign – one of the most successful internet memes in history!
Mr. Hadar was instrumental in the launch of the social media and content creation company SoulPancake which has inked deals with several of the largest global brands while raising millions for charity. He has also been honored with the ‘High Times Political Trailblaze’ award for his varied pursuits.
If you do great work, recognition is bound to follow. This holds true for Aviv Hadar as he continues to achieve one milestone after another for his trailblazing efforts. His newest company Oregrown was voted ‘Best Dispensary’ in Central Oregon each of its three years in business! Oregrown was also awarded ‘Best Place to Work’ in 2017 by The Source Weekly and was crowned ‘Startup of the Year 2017’ by the Bend Chamber of Commerce.
Despite all his stellar achievements, Mr. Hadar’s thirst to do more is nowhere close to quenched. In addition to the above, he is also a founding member of the Oregon Cannabis Association, a member of Oregon Liquor Control Commission Rules Advisory Committee, a Leafly Technical Advisory Board Member, a member of the National Cannabis Industry Association, and the first person in Oregon State history to testify on behalf of Oregon’s cannabis legalization measure in 2015!
Aviv Hadar is proof that if you put your heart and mind to excelling at something, you will rarely fail. After all, success comes to those who pursue their goals and dreams with everything they have!
