Jeffrey Harris, CEO and co-founder of springbig, stated: “We are thrilled to close this business combination and further springbig’s evolution – not only as a public company, but as a trusted and distinguished technology and software leader serving the growing North American cannabis ecosystem. Looking ahead, we will strategically position and adapt our industry-leading offering alongside the maturation of the cannabis sector, including expanding our engagement with major brands. Additionally, we will continue exploring avenues for growth, both organically and through M&A.”
