Ben Larson

CO-FOUNDER & MANAGING PARTNER, GATEWAY

I am a serial entrepreneur, investor, professional business coach, and startup adviser based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am the Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Gateway, the premier startup accelerator and venture fund for the burgeoning cannabis industry. I am also a Director and Mentor for the Founder Institute, where I formerly managed global operations and helped grow into over 100 cities around the world. I'm an active Senior Advisor for the non-profit Youth Business USA and reside on several boards inside and out of the cannabis industry. I travel around the world speaking and advising early stage companies. I love my family, dogs, and scotch.
