Patient advocate. Data junkie. Technologist. Social entrepreneur. Surfer.
Adriana was inspired to build EpicHint after her friend used cannabis to aide in his recovery from early onset colon cancer and was provided poor product recommendations by Budtenders.
Prior to founding EpicHint she used interdisciplinary principles and agile methodologies to build, and grow, two tech startups; a B2B competitive analytics platform for Internet Retailer 500 e-commerce marketers that protected personal identifying information, and a B2C e-commerce recommendation engine for sustainable and fairly made shopping. She is known for being able to translate a product’s social mission into viable financials.
Her work building tech for social good earned her an invitation to contribute a column to ‘The New York Times’ and features in media such as ‘Entrepreneur Magazine’ as a “Do Good Business Entrepreneur To Watch”, ‘NBC Universal’ as a “Top 10 Latino Innovator”, ‘Forbes’, ‘Fast Company’, ‘TechCrunch’, amongst many other media outlets.
When not working she surfs, loves to cook with fresh locally sourced ingredients, mentors girls in STEAM, advises startups, and hacks on side projects in skills-based learning, artificial intelligence, telemedicine, marketing tech, health and wellness, and cannabis niches.
