Socrates Rosenfeld

CEO, Jane Technologies, Inc

After graduating from the United States Military Academy in 2004 and completing his service as an Apache helicopter pilot in 2011, Socrates set his sights on pursuing a graduate degree at MIT's Sloan School of Management as a Tillman Scholar. There he was able to open his mind to the entrepreneurial spirit and discover new ways to serve his country, community, and fellow veterans. During his time in Boston reconnecting with loved ones, taking full advantage of the creative and diverse MIT community, and focusing on his own personal growth and health, Socrates discovered the medicinal benefits of cannabis. After completing his MBA program in 2014 and joining McKinsey & Company in Silicon Valley, it was not long before he co-founded iheartjane.com, the cannabis industry's first end-to-end online marketplace, with his brother and fellow MIT grad Abraham. Socrates has a new mission to bring legitimacy and access to medicinal cannabis and serve as an advocate for veterans' right to choose a holistic approach to physical and emotional healing.
