April Pride

A serial creative entrepreneur, April Pride spent time in the worlds of architecture, fashion, and design before finding her way to cannabis. In 2016, she launched Van der Pop, a woman focused brand offering stylish accessories to store, smoke, and share cannabis. It soon became clear she needed to add another arm to the operation: education. Through creative content and events, April became intimate with the information gap between women and cannabis. Van der Pop has since become one of North America’s most recognized cannabis brands for women and was acquired in 2018 by Canopy Growth Corporation, the world's largest cannabis company. April is one of the first women who can claim a successful exit in cannabis, boasting a 12x return to investors. With her new company Of Like Minds, April looks to continue her work educating women on the potential of cannabis for their personal health and happiness. April is a graduate of the University of Virginia's School of Architecture and earned her M.A. at Parsons School of Design.
