Justin Dufour

Founder

Justin received his undergraduate Bachelor of Science degrees in Computer Information Systems and Business Administration, with an emphasis in Finance from Chapman University. Also during this time, Justin founded the Computer Information and Computer Science Honor Society at Chapman and was rewarded with a Microsoft Scholarship to become certified as both a Microsoft Network Engineer and a Microsoft Database Administrator. Justin was recruited from Chapman University by MetLife Investors, a wholly-owned subsidiary of MetLife Insurance, to build banking software to manage their variable annuity investment portfolio. In the first year of implementation over $14B in transactions flawlessly moved through the system he designed. Justin was quickly promoted to Lead Systems Analyst. Justin then went on to attend St. Mary’s School of law where he received his Juris Doctorate as well as his Master of Science in Industrial Engineering.

While studying for the patent bar in Oregon, Justin met his former partners and started Orchestra Software. During his time at Orchestra, Justin acted as the Chief Technology Officer and guided strategic development of the company. During his time at Orchestra, Justin’s efforts lead to a four-fold increase in production and efficiency. Orchestra offers three industry-leading solutions, for the fuel industry, the multi-tenant restaurant industry, and the craft beer Industry. Each one of these industries offers their own complexities from taxation, third party integration’s, and excess government regulation. The solution Justin developed for the Craft Beer industry is responsible for processing over 15% of all the Craft Beer brewed in the United States, with clients such as Firestone Walker, Odell, and Full Sail. In the mid-tier fuel industry, Justin managed the creation of a solution which allowed fuel cooperatives greater control over fuel purchasing and fuel distribution management among their members, governing over a $150M line of credit spread over 350 active members.

Developing solutions for these industries has put Justin in a prime position to run this company. As CEO, he looks forward to tackling the cannabis industry by providing the first true micro vertical industry solution for the cannabis sectors, backed with decades of experience dealing with complex taxation, industrial and business processes, and government regulations. Justin is confident that Viridian Sciences will lead the way with the best business management software available for the Medical, Recreational, and Industrial cannabis industries.
