Dan Stofka is the driving force behind KIND’s technology development.
In the last 19 years Dan has worked in technology, manufacturing, and retail. He has been the founder or principal in several ventures.
Dan Stofka has worked in electronics all of his adult life. He has always had a passion for them. At age six he was fixing am/fm radios, and at twelve he was re-wiring telephone/data ports throughout his parents house. He was accepted to a magnet computer science program for high school, and during those years he managed the computer department at a local Best Buy. His performance was considered top 1% of management out of over 600 stores. Soon after high school he started his first business doing high end home automation and home theater.
After his first business saw the effects of the economy drop, he took a management position with Office Depot. He helped develop the tech repair program utilized at 1200+ Office Depot retail stores. He also trained hundreds of employees and managers as he himself managed at the training store for Colorado. After working there he was utilized to repair many other underperforming stores.
He has been working with Dispensaries and Grows since their influx in 2009, and in 2011 took the position of I.T. Director for Colorado Dispensary Services which operated two grow facilities and four retail stores. He was an integral part of developing company processes, and also completed many other projects. He supplied the security plan, safety plans, employee HR processes, handled all technology issues, managed all security systems, and even worked behind the counter on occasion to stay close to the customer base.
In 2013 he founded ElecTech LLC with a focus on cannabis security and technology. They have supplied camera surveillance, security alarms, and tech services to dozens of businesses in multiple states. Directly stemming from this experience he was subcontracted to be a specialist for Agrisoft DG with the task of developing relationships between hardware and software. The offer was made shortly after for him to join the Agrisoft team, which subsequently became the KIND team.
From retail to manufacturing, tech support to process management, every aspect of developing and managing the world’s most extensive seed to sale solution has been covered thoroughly in his experience both inside and outside of the cannabis marketplace.
