Gateway is THE first Differential Accelerator™ and investment fund for startups. We understand that every founder and every company has their own strengths, their own needs, and is at a unique place in their trajectory. Differential acceleration allows us to focus on what you need, when you need it, and create a custom accelerated path for your business. 


A program specifically designed for you to help you become a world-class entrepreneur that can compete in the mainstream markets. We accomplish this through a wide breadth of expertise, high-touch mentorship through a proven model, and infusing you into a vast network of mentors, partners, and alumni companies. 


You get an upfront investment of $50,000 for 5% equity. That's a $1,000,000 valuation. We work with you intensely for 6+ months, driving you to that next round of funding or major benchmark, but it doesn't stop there. We work tirelessly to help you grow your company and stick by your side well beyond the program.


Our team knows what it takes to differentiate and succeed in highly competitive and emerging markets. We've seen it before and will do what it takes to get you ahead of the curve. Whether it's mentors, capital, events, or resources, we will constantly be striving to strengthen your experience and results.



Gateway is a full immersion business accelerator and seed investment program born out of Silicon Valley and located in the capital of cannabis advocacy and innovation. 




Our management team has deep startup knowledge and an extensive entrepreneur and capital network in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are leveraging the lessons learned and capital earned in Silicon Valley to grow the potential of the cannabis industry by creating a new breed of cannabis-related companies.
