The Atlantic Canada Venture Gateway (Gateway) is an outreach initiative of the Faculty of Business Administration. Gateway was officially launched in October 2009 and offers two main programs, an investment readiness program and an investor partnering program.

The investment readiness program prepares Atlantic Canadian technology firms to attract private equity or venture capital. Eligible clients work with Gateway management as well as a network of university, government and industry partners on issues such as corporate strategy, the preparation of investment proposals, and due diligence readiness.

The investor partnering program supports clients seeking strategic investment from international business partners. Gateway and the Higher Colleges of Technology's Dubai Men's College (DMC) in the United Arab Emirates jointly offer this program. Clients gain insight and guidance from DMC's senior advisors who provide strategic guidance and match clients with prospective investors and business partners in the Middle East region.

Specialized training programs and ongoing advisory support are also provided.

Gateway is located on the fourth floor of the Faculty of Business Administration alongside the Gardiner Centre. Further information can be obtained by contacting the Atlantic Canada Venture Gateway by telephone at (709) 864-4088 or through the website at
