Gateway is California's premier incubator for startups in the cannabis industry.
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.
Twice a year Gateway admits and invests $30k each in up to 10 cannabis startups.
The startups move to Oakland, the cannabis capital of the US, for 4 months. During this time, they will experience intense coaching and mentoring to take their companies to the next level. Each batch will work towards a Demo Day where the startups will present their companies to a carefully selected investor    more / less
