Our Team

Micah Tapman

Micah Tapman is a long-time venture capitalist with a background in cybersecurity, financial services, and the cannabis industry. He led the first investment in BDS Analytics in 2015 and has served the company in a variety of roles including investor, advisor, director, and now chairman. 

Micah is a co-founder of CanopyBoulder and 7thirty, two venture capital investment groups focused on the cannabis industry, and he is a veteran of both the U.S. Marine Corps and the Fortune 500 world with an MBA and B.S. in computers. 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.

Roy Bingham Co-Founder and CEO
Roy Bingham
Co-Founder & CEO

Roy Bingham is a Harvard MBA and former McKinsey consultant, a serial entrepreneur and founder of BDS Analytics. He grew up in the UK, was a banker/financier in London, then moved to the USA in 1993.

Bingham started BDS Analytics after recognizing that the emerging cannabis industry lacked the kind of sophisticated, sales-based data that is both commonplace and essential in other, more established industries. In those industries, market research – and consumer behavior – drive everything from new product development to inventory and branding decisions.

Among his prior businesses, Bingham had been both an early investor in SPINS – a very successful data analytics company for the Natural Products Industry and later an expert user of their data as a senior marketing executive in natural products.
