Everything you need to begin building your dream company.
If you are here, it's because we believe in you. Gateway Blueprint™ is an invite-only program designed to help the most promising entrepreneurs develop the foundation for a truly scalable company in the cannabis industry. You will work alongside a small, hand-selected group of aspiring entrepreneurs building the next generation of cannabis companies. You will also have access to the Gateway Works™ community.
We've designed a special curriculum that is highly structured and ensures that you have executed on all the company-building components that have established the foundation for all successful companies. We have many years of experience driving founders through an accelerated program that ensures you are addressing a real need for a sizeable market with a unique positioning and a defensible offering.
This is a 12-week course housed in the Gateway Incubator. Every week, there will be a 2-hour class session and a company-building assignment associated with each session. The classes will be taught by Gateway founders, Ben Larson and Carter Laren, and you will have weekly one-on-one office hours with them. The combination of the structured curriculum and guided coaching is a proven model for success.
