After graduating from the United States Military Academy and completing his service as an Apache helicopter pilot, Socrates set his sights on pursuing a graduate degree at MIT Sloan as a Tillman Scholar. There he was able to open his mind to the entrepreneurial spirit and discover new ways to serve his country, community, and fellow veterans.
During his time in Boston, taking full advantage of the creative and diverse MIT community, and focusing on his own personal growth and health, Socrates discovered the medicinal benefits of cannabis. After completing his MBA program and joining McKinsey & Company in Silicon Valley, it was not long before he created iheartjane.com, the cannabis industry’s largest online marketplace, with his brother and fellow MIT grad Abraham. Currently, the company partners with over 1800 dispensaries in 34 states.
Socrates has a new mission to bring legitimacy and safe access to cannabis and serves as an advocate for veterans’ right to choose a holistic approach to physical and emotional healing.
