Gust Launch is a sleek product for any entrepreneurs looking to manage their governance, risk, and compliance.

I am very happy with their overall engagement with the entrepreneurs. The webinars from various service providers cut down the time an entrepreneur would spend to get the services.

Chance Mayfield
I’d recommend Gust over and over. The product is amazing, the team is even better. I wouldn’t look anywhere else to incorporate, or to manage everything else we use Gust for.

Sam Rystrom
Gust Launch has felt like our own virtual startup advisor.

I originally began using Gust for the same reasons most people do: cap table management and incorporation. While managing both of those things with Gust Launch is a breeze, what I wasn’t expecting to find was the immense amount of digestible and actionable knowledge that Gust had to offer on nearly every startup-related obstacle that I would run into.

I absolutely love using Gust. If you're a founder or an entrepreneur, Gust is your single most valuable resource to getting started. I wish I discovered them earlier in my start-up journey, I would have saved a boatload of time and money. Gust's interface is clean and simple to use and the info they provide every step of the way really helps you get educated on best practices so you feel comfortable and understand what you're doing (for example, issuing stock grants to an advisor). All of this helps you get prepared so you have the best chance of raising money from investors.

The team at Gust has also been unbelievably helpful and generous with their time. Every single seminar they put on is easily digestible, information-packed, and has made me a better, more educated founder. They've even been generous with their time to help answer some complex questions we had about getting our cap table organized. Gust has been like an advisor to us, only better, because they don't ask to be on our cap table :)

As a founder myself, I created my business with Gust. As a mentor for Techstars, and half a dozen other accelerators and entrepreneurial programs, I advise all my companies to use Gust to create their entity.

It's simple: Gust was built for growth startups who will seek investor funding and need equity agreements, NDA's, IP control, vesting, etc. If that's you, it will cost you many thousands of dollars to work with lawyers, a lot of heart attacks and confusion, or one significantly cheaper (10X) and an incredibly simple system to get all that done and more. Use Gust to avoid the fuss!

We really felt that the Gust team was by our side as we worked through the various documents for our first C-corp. And when we had questions, they were super responsive and helpful. I highly recommend their platform and their people.

I love the simplicity of incorporating through Gust Launch, and their customer service is amazing. We needed to incorporate our startup immediately as we were already invoicing a big client. It was so easy, streamlined and fast. Once I entered my info, it took only 3 days—including the weekend!

I'm incredibly impressed with the communication and streamlining of processes through Gust Launch. As someone relatively new to entity formation and fundraising, I am supported in all ways to be successful. My company is treated like a top priority at all times which provides peace of mind as I focus on the other challenges of starting a business. I recommend this service to any other founder.

Gust is simplifying and taking the friction out of early stage investing, all of which is good for emerging companies and our economy as a whole. The forms are top notch and are a perfect fit for start-ups and our growing entrepreneurial ecosystem.

I never thought filing for incorporation could actually be a pleasant experience, but incorporating my company with Gust Launch actually was. It was clean, simple, intuitive—and most importantly, quick. I work with startups every day, and I recommend Gust Launch to everyone who hasn't already incorporated.
