Mary Jane Menu is the brainchild of Cathy McCorquodale, a 25+ year veteran in the software industry. One of her clients, a former pro athlete, tasked her with finding a way to make his cannabis delivery and wholesale platform smart. During this time, she heard the Standard Insights co-founder, Jerry Abiog, on a podcast talking about how AI can help drive growth for cannabis companies – she reached out to him about building a customized ordering platform for her client.
In the ensuing months, the six-figure deal closed, leaving Cathy and her client happy. Cathy approached Standard Insights’ leadership to help her start, back, and run her own tech company after seeing how great the platform’s predictions worked. Given the lack of female representation, viable ordering platforms, and the implosion of many first-generation canna tech companies, Mary Jane Menu was formed to address the market gaps and show women that they can accomplish anything!
