Micah Tapman is the Managing Director and co-founder of 7thirty, an investment fund supporting growth-stage companies operating in the ancillary cannabis industry. The fund grew out of the CanopyBoulder business accelerator he helped found in 2014. In his time with CanopyBoulder he led investments into over 90 companies, managed over $11MM in assets, and evaluated thousands of opportunities. Micah also serves as a Director for industry-leading companies such as BDS Analytics.
Micah is a veteran of both the U.S. Marine Corps and the Fortune 500 world with an MBA and B.S. in computer networking. As a serial entrepreneur and venture capitalist he combines a deep understanding of technology with a focus on business strategy. His time in the Corps provided an outstanding leadership foundation, which melded with business training at SAIC and in graduate school to create a dynamic leader with the ability to motivate and empower those around him.
Transitioning from a career in cybersecurity to the world of cannabis allowed Micah to focus on the strategic aspects of business, identify and assist outstanding new businesses, and apply his portfolio management skills across a wider range of assets. As a venture capitalist, Micah focuses on building long-term and strategic relationships with high-quality entrepreneurs with solid business ideas and teams. A firm commitment to scenario planning guides his decision making and combines strategic vision with more immediate actions.
Outside of work, Micah’s likely found on a mountainside with a bike, camera, or some combination of the two. While he now hails from Colorado, he grew up in Maine and is a life-long Boston Red Sox fan.
