In the fall of 2020, co-founders Ari Roth and Ethan Cott created GateTVs to ease the burden of wanting entertainment in a college setting. It did not make sense that fridges and microwaves could be rented, but not TVs.
During the 2020 school year, Ari and Ethan worked behind the scenes surveying Colgate students, building a website, forming an LLC, structuring the business, and more. After lots of hard work, we received official approval from the school to start business operations in the fall 2021.
We did over 35 rentals during our first two semesters operating. TIA was impressed with our traction and supported us with a seed-grant. This allowed us to purchase more TV inventory ahead of time, leading to quicker delivery times for our customers.
Natalie Rong, a 2022 addition to the team as Creative Director, took our marketing efforts to new heights. By fall 2022, we grew our inventory to over 50 smart TVs, all of which have been rented out. We are excited about our momentum and looking forward to continuing to serve Colgate students.
