How to Invest in Startups

Gust’s SaaS funding platform provides all the tools entrepreneurs need to manage their startup funding process, from pitch to exit.

This is a two sided platform for investors looking to invest and for startups looking for investment.  As a startup you can upload your pitch video, describe your team, connect with investors, and manage your post-investment relationships.

Gust lets you search by location and type of company.  Most investors invest near by their homes.  It allows them to feel connected to their investment, lend advice and be involved more closely if the company is near by.

Gust was founded by David S. Rose and it’s investors have already funded 1800+ startups. He wrote a book specifically for a very specific type of business starter: the entrepreneur who is deliberately setting out to create a scalable, high-growth business designed for the twenty-first century; a business that will hire employees, issue stock options, raise money from outside investors, grow rapidly, and eventually either be acquired by a larger company or “go public” through an initial public offering.
