October 27, 2022

HedgeRow Analysis today announced their selection into the exclusive Startup Program within the Esri Partner Network. HedgeRow’s Partnership with Esri, the global market leader in geographic information system (GIS) software, will result in a game-changing tech stack that provides one door access for store operators and investors to pull millions of pieces of propriety and public siting data, from dozens of sources, in intuitive time, cost, and risk reducing maps and ready-to-print reports.

“HedgeRow’s Dispensary Defender will pay for itself in the short term by saving a day of siting work save per week, and maximizing long term profit with quick and accurate siting information to stay ahead of the competition for years to come,” said Matt Walter, HedgeRow CEO and Co-Founder. “From retail site selection to competitor analysis, this partnership will supercharge retail operators’ ability to see and act on key insights, remove uncertainties and improve your odds in the wild west of cannabis expansion.”

“Esri is the leader in GIS software, and we are thrilled to formally partner with them,” said HedgeRow Co-Founder and Chief Data Officer Steve Balogh. “HedgeRow’s ability to harness the amazing reach of Esri ArcGIS software is a win for our clients, will increase speed, improve functionality and reduce cost on the questions that every expanding cannabis company faces – where to locate stores to optimize profit in new markets.”

The partnership with Esri, the global market leader in geographic information system (GIS) software, location intelligence, and mapping will provide access to a valuable geospatial software and go-to-market resources designed to help HedgeRow expand app development.

HedgeRow will deliver new data-driven, transparent insights; and help emerging-market companies navigate complex regulatory systems like Cannabis Retail and Energy Transition.
