Bringing People, Ideas ... and Plants Together
The people behind U-Grow Rentals is an unlikely group of professionals who have found their way together by accident – almost literally. The “Serial Entrepreneurs” who have created the U-Grow roadmap have one predominantly common trait among them: a healthy dose of past reality checks that brought them U-Grow. Trials and errors have dotted their pasts and mapped their futures, until they found themselves together with their next most predominant trait in common: A realization that the medical industry as we knew it was over; together they realized just what stood before them.
Now, we want to share our wisdom with others. The marriage of technology and agriculture was already a big opportunity before Marijuana became legal; now, the marriage of technology and Cannabis is already reverberating throughout the medical industry. Regardless of your perspective, everybody likes choice – especially if you have little other medical recourse. We want to help people realize these choices.
In short, in can be said that the individuals who make up U-Grow are investors, public advocates,
scientists and patients. Effectively, U-Grow Rentals is a set of partners looking to expand that
partnership....we welcome your voice.
Roland Cordova, Founder & President:
Roland is the epitome of the entrepreneur; he realized at a very young age that being told what to do meant he was on the wrong side of the conversation. At this young stage he got his introduction into business by selling imported tools out of the trunk of his car – driving throughout all major metropolitan areas in California and even into Washington State. He would sell to various independent mechanics and small businesses that used tools that he specialized in.
Since then he has started several businesses, and each one has been a marked success. One of his companies was so successful that it attracted Los Angeles media outlet KTLA, who aired his story on its featured series, “Making it – Minority Success Stories,” hosted by Larry McCormick.

This is a manufacturing facility in Los Angeles that turned everyday household products into clever, innovative and secure mini-safes where the inside chamber of the products was concealed from typical visual inspection.

Sales were achieved through a large telemarketing team that Roland hiring, training, and oversight of 2 shifts daily selling all over the United States.
