    Gust is a global platform for the sourcing and management of early-stage investments. Gust enables skilled entrepreneurs to collaborate with the smartest investors by virtually supporting all aspects of the investment relationship, from initial pitch to successful exit.

    We are a smart group of 30+ employees located in Chelsea, New York City. In our office, you’ll find an open layout of people that are energetic, move quickly, speak 10 languages, and collaborate incessantly. Breakfast on Mondays, lunch on Wednesdays, Company happy hours, and full-day outings are woven into our social fabric.

    We have fun, but are serious about providing the best experience for our users. Together, we make it happen. We recently won 2014 SIIA CODiE Awards for Best Ecosystem Hub and Best Collaboration Solution and previously won 2013 and 2012 SIIA CODiE Awards For Best Collaboration/Social Networking Solution. Gust also won the UK Government's inaugural 2013 GREAT Tech Award for Best Finance Technology Start-up. Other awards that Gust has won include the 2012 SWIFT Innotribe Most Innovative Financial Technology Company in North America and Breakthrough Angel Product of the Year in 2011 by EBAN (the European Business Angel Network association). Our goals are clear, our ambitions are high, and our team is stacked.
