San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 16, 2013
Gust, the global investor relations platform connecting high-growth entrepreneurs and active early-stage investors, was honored with the peer-judged SIIA CODiE Award for Best Collaboration Solution, for the second year in a row.
The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the US software and digital content industries, announced Gust’s win at its annual All About The Cloud conference in San Francisco. An SIIA CODiE Award win for software companies is an especially prestigious honor as each award winner was first peer-reviewed by a field of software industry executives, whose evaluations determined 100 finalists. SIIA members then reviewed these finalists and voted to select the CODiE Awards Winners.
Gust enables high-growth entrepreneurs to collaborate with the smartest investors by virtually supporting all aspects of the investment relationship, from pitch to successful exit. Gust currently powers over 1,000 investment organizations in 75 countries and six languages, and facilitates collaboration among more than 200,000 startups and 45,000 accredited investors.
“We are honored to receive the Best Collaboration Solution CODiE Award for the second year in a row,” said David S. Rose, CEO of Gust. “By taking full advantage of the opportunities available in cloud-based technology and communications, Gust has managed to create a single, global collaboration platform that has been adopted as the standard by an entire industry. We thank the Software & Information Industry Association for their commitment to promoting quality products and their recognition of the hard work behind our platform.”
Gust earned the CODiE Award in 2012 for Best Collaboration/Social Networking Solution.

The SIIA CODiE™ Awards, originally called the Excellence in Software Awards, were established in 1986 by the Software Publishers Association (SPA), now the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), so that pioneers of the then-nascent software industry could evaluate and honor each other’s work. Since then, the CODiE Awards program has carried out the same purpose – to showcase the software and information industry’s finest products and services and to honor excellence in corporate achievement.
