We seek to protect our planet by connecting new and resource-efficient technologies to create the advanced cultivation systems of tomorrow.
Indranet Partners was founded on the ancient Vedic concept of Indra's net. The Vedas describe Indra, a Hindu deity, as having woven an infinitely large net with a shining jewel at each vertex. Any one jewel you look at reflects all other jewels. Each jewel reflected in this one jewel also reflects all other jewels, ad infinitum. Our team seeks to embody this dynamic by interconnecting cannabis producers with the technologies and services that will best support their goals.
We operate on an ethos of "everything Earth-friendly." This transpires as we select partners whose technologies will most effectively increase agricultural resource efficiency.
After exiting the the Silicon Valley's advanced photonic engineering industry, Bill O'Banion (co-founder and Executive Chairman) relocated to Michigan to be closer to his immediate family. At this time, he pivoted to the finance industry where he was joined by his son, James O'Banion (co-founder and CEO), and a close family friend, Shane Adams (co-founder and CSO).
The team saw great potential in the burgeoning cannabis industry and began building a staggering portfolio of cannabis-based lenders, technology companies, producers, and retailers. However, being a new and quasi-legal industry, it was found to be largely outside the capabilities of the traditional lending institutions Bill, James, and Shane contracted their services to.
They soon decided to form Indranet Partners in order to address the cannabis industry in a much broader capacity. They combined their shared financial vision for the cannabis industry, an executive chairman's 30+ years of sales and advanced engineering expertise, and a network of over 400 cannabis companies to create an interface that connects cannabis producers with the technology and services they want: those with the highest efficiency and value possible.
