The Easy Road?

Many ups and many downs. Therefore, the road has been very difficult.

Things started to turn around when Quantum 9 focused primarily in success areas.  Meaning, areas with the most success.

The VoyageChicago Marijuana staff goes on to uncover many of the areas that were less than perfect. For example, Quantum 9 focused many years on creating a seed to sale tracking technology.  It wasn’t until that aspect of the business was terminated that the company soared to new lengths.

Cannabis Licensing Consulting

Cannabis licensing was a highly profitable and highly competitive space. The firm started to spend more time, money and resources in making that area of the consulting practice, the main focus. Most of all, new cannabis consultants were hired to ensure the material that was being submitted for the project were as thorough and accurate as possible. VoyageChicago Marijuana staff discuss the high win rate. Therefore, highlighting the 91.6% win ratio.

Michael remarks, “I think we are successful because I play an active role in the entire project. But, we help understand the scope at the start of the project. From the moment of contract execution, I lead the efforts. Meaning, I act as the main point of contact for all sides and run all the weekly meetings.”

VoyageChicago Marijuana Staff – “Isn’t that hard to keep track of all of the projects within the state?”

Michael goes on to say, “We only take on one or two projects in a state. So, this allows us to focus on a couple of clients without multiple focuses.”
