Gust Launch helps US founders start & run their companies
Gust Launch, which started offering easy, cost-effective incorporation, has expanded to provide all the legal, banking, and financial tools and services high-growth startups need to start and run their business. Through Gust Launch, founders incorporate and form as a Delaware C-Corp and issue and manage stock, after which Launch provides bookkeeping services, access to lawyers, banking, ongoing equity management, tax support, and more, all for $199 per month.
Gust integrates with Zapier
Gust’s API is now available for use in Zapier! Through Zapier, you can automate tasks in hundreds of other software tools whenever certain events happen on Gust. For example, when a new startup applies to your organization for funding, Zapier can create a lead in your CRM with the startup’s information, and then email a team member to let them know.
Affordable pre-money valuations for early-stage startups
In response to the funding landscape shifting more towards angel investment, we developed an online tool that will perform $19 pre-money valuations for startups. While many early-stage startups are not ready for a 409A valuation, understanding their rough position in the valuation landscape can be very useful for helping identify areas of the business and team that need improvement.
Digital Hubs create spaces for local ecosystem players to interact
Early-stage ecosystems are distributed both nationally and globally, but tend to concentrate in geographic hotbeds. To better facilitate community and collaboration within these areas, Gust’s Entrepreneur Ecosystem Hubs create an official startup destination in partnership with local governments and key players in each locale, such as Digital.NYC, Tech.London, and Starthub Boston. Hubs create a place for discovery and exchange among investors, founders, accelerators, and other ecosystem players, along with automatically-updated news feeds and resources.
