VCU Innovation Gateway is, as of this year, responsible for supporting new university-created startups.

Gerard Eldering serves as director of new ventures and will build a foundation for VCU’s inventors to turn research into companies. Meet Gerard.

Gerard is also CEO of Perfusion Medical, a VCU startup. Perfusion is commercializing PEG-20k, an IV solution for restoration of tissue perfusion during hemorrhagic shock and related conditions. Last month, the company was awarded first place in the High Growth Category at Activation Capital's Pitch Virginia event.
