Why Gateway X

Grow a business. Grow yourself.

Our purpose is to help people grow, learn and reach their highest potential through the power of business and entrepreneurship.

Founded by serial entrepreneur Jesse Pujji, Gateway X was created to provide a better way to start the entrepreneurial journey.

When you co-found with us, we stack the odds in your favor from day one by leveraging our customer acquisition expertise, vast network, and experience as an entrepreneur.

Focus on results - not the minutia

We provide expertise, empathy, initial capital, and join you in the trenches so you're not bogged down by anything that isn’t selling or building. Let us help you keep your eyes on the prize, while we handle the rest.


Control your own destiny

Spend more time delivering value to customers and less time chasing your next funding round. We apply profitable constraints from day one to drive creative problem solving and impact oriented prioritization.
