Capital Cathy: Julia Jacobson, CEO of Aster Farms

Welcome to Capital Cathy, the show that talks about funding a future for women, and their experiences in raising capital.

With roughly 2% of investments going towards women-founded businesses, Capital Cathy discusses the hurdles we face in financing, and how to secure funding for our companies.


In this episode, Emerald Media hosts Julia Jacobson, CEO of Aster Farms, a sustainably grown cannabis operation in Northern California.

Jacobson discusses her entrepreneurial itch that lead her from being a Bloomingdale’s merchandise buyer to the tech industry.

After experiencing the cannabis market, and the lack of transparency, Jacobson decided to start Aster Farms, a brand for conscience consumers, and take back what it means to be organic.

With her strong financial background and business sense, Jacobson brings the reality of financing to life in this episode as she delivers unwavering advice on entering the industry, managing negotiations, and the importance of trusting your gut.
