Founded in 2018 by Vince C. Ning and Jun S. Lee, Nabis has quickly established itself as the leading cannabis wholesale platform in California. Nabis supports the largest portfolio of brands in the world, exclusively supplying over 300 brands to nearly all of California's dispensaries.
Vince and Jun bring years of experience in enterprise software combined with a deep passion and understanding of cannabis. They started out as delivery drivers, moving products to dispensaries to build Nabis from the ground up.
Prior to starting Nabis, Vince began his career as an engineer at Microsoft before founding a software company called Scaphold, which was later acquired by Amazon. Jun started as an engineer at Facebook before founding an artificial intelligence company called Allganize.

Obsess over the customer
Think from the customer’s perspective and work backwards. Build long-term partnerships, even if it means sacrificing short-term gains. Embody high standards and constantly raise the bar. We earn our partners’ trust by doing hard things well.
Have a clear vision
Start with the end goal in mind. Define. Define. Define. Once your vision is clear, the optimal solution will be revealed. By communicating simple clear goals, visionaries become magnetic.
Make big promises and over-deliver. Set the goal and focus on the most important problems, not the most urgent. Be an expert and work with other experts to solve problems with speed, accountability, and commitment. Rapidly learn from your mistakes.
Focus on the bottom line
Achieve more with less. Leaders are rewarded for resourcefulness and innovation. Leverage constraints to find creative and efficient solutions. Scalably and sustainably deliver the best products at the lowest cost.
Have the right attitude
Think like an owner — we do what we say. We are all entrepreneurs in the cannabis industry and we respect the intense struggle of the entrepreneurial process. We know that without the entrepreneurs in this industry, we have no business. Win the right way and be competitive, but stay humble.
Leaders develop other leaders into smart, humble, hard-working, and collaborative people. Help others understand the "why" behind every decision and value. Be able to teach the subject and have empathy and examples to explain it.
