After graduating in 2013 with a degree in Mathematics from NYU and extensive coding knowledge, Jayan moved to Colorado to get a chance to work in the cannabis industry in its first case of full legalization. Jayan helped build out Cannabase, a B2B platform connecting dispensaries, growers and infused product companies in order to centralize and organize the abstract, unsecure and dysfunctional wholesale cannabis market. He garnered a strong network within the industry as well as a very deep and detailed knowledge of the political landscape in the US and the world in relation to cannabis policy reform. Shortly after my departure, Cannabase successfully exited and was absorbed by Helix TCS, a cannabis ancillary company covering technology, compliance, and security.

In late 2015, Jayan joined his family’s company, Jetcraft, the strongest private jet sales and marketing company in the world. He restructured the IT infrastructure at the company and later moved into a sales support role. He has been Jahid’s and FK Group’s lead sales support person since 2017.

After a couple of years of working with Jetcraft and keeping up with the cannabis industry on the side through his network and political relations, a few of FK Group’s and Jetcraft’s clients came to him for advice on how to get invested in the cannabis industry. As a result, he has led a few investments for them in the industry that have been performing well. Jayan has also been nominated to join the board of Americans for Safe Access, one of the largest member-based organizations working to ensure safe and legal access to cannabis for therapeutic uses and research.

Jayan acts as the Director of Alternative Investments at FK Group. He is in charge of sourcing new investments in “alternative” spaces, such as cannabis, technology, and renewable energy. He also researches new opportunities that are brought to the team in these spaces.

Jayan speaks English, French and Spanish, holds a private pilot license and currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.
