We’ll help you start your company the smart way by forming a Delaware C-Corporation — an approach preferred by founders and investors alike. We walk you through each step of incorporation, answer common questions, and make sure you have all the info you need. Everything happens online, and you can be up and running in as little as three days.
After you incorporate, we’ll help you set up your company using our easy step-by-step process vetted by experts and entrepreneurs. You’ll quickly establish bylaws, appoint board members, and limit founder liability.
We make it easy for founders to manage company ownership and issue stock electronically, with customizable vesting schedules and built-in tax forms. Our cap table software enables you to quickly see who owns what and automatically track equity grants.
Approve stock grants and update board membership, all via easy online signatures. We walk you through creating and executing a new board action in just a few simple steps.
Starting with your very first purchase, we make it easy to understand the financial health of your business. Tracking your expenses and income reduces the cost and difficulty of working with an accountant and allows you to understand your cash flow, with built-in guidance, burn rate, runway, cost forecasting, and other metrics to keep an eye on your bottom line. Potentially tax-deductible costs are highlighted for your convenience.
With Gust Launch, you don’t need to go it alone. Our friendly and knowledgeable live support team is here to answer questions, help you stay on track, or just lend a knowing ear.
Effortlessly build business relationships by creating and executing the agreements you need, the moment you need them. Define relationships for contractors and advisors and protect confidential information and intellectual property (IP), all via simple online signatures.
Raise financing through a Gust Launch Simple Agreement for Future Equity (SAFE) or Convertible Note. We make it easy to create and issue SAFEs and Convertible Notes electronically with simple workflows, built-in best practices, board approvals, and easy online signatures.
Finding the right counsel can make all the difference. We connect you with the country’s leading startup law firms to help you make the best decisions for your company. Your lawyer will waive their initial retainer fee, and on the months you engage them, even deduct one hour of legal work from your bill.
Gust Launch is built on compassion, so you don’t just join a platform — you join a community of founders who share experience, advice, and moral support. You can also tap into our network of investors and experts to gain powerful business insight.
Access easy-to-use IT infrastructure: computing power, database storage, content delivery, and more.
Reach customers with a cloud-based email solution that ensures deliverability and enables you to run targeted marketing campaigns.
Enable employees to share in the success of your company by creating an Equity Incentive Plan. We’ll walk you through the process of establishing the Plan, setting terms, and reserving authorized and unissued shares in just a few simple steps.
Manage your option pool all in one place. We make it easy to issue options to employees, set vesting schedules, and get board approvals with simple online workflows, built-in guidance, and electronic signatures.
Evaluate the impact of future fundraising events or acquisitions and what they’ll mean for you and your shareholders. Quickly model convertible notes, run follow-on investment scenarios, or evaluate exit events with modeling tools built on your cap table data.
Seamlessly get an audit-proof 409A valuation the moment you need it. Through Gust Launch, you can request an independent valuation from our trusted partners, get board approval, and receive alerts when you’re in need of an updated 409A. Whether granting options to employees, raising a new round of investment, or going through an audit, we make sure you have a valid, AICPA-compliant report so you stay protected under Safe Harbor.
Once you start generating revenue or hiring employees, our bookkeeping experts at Simplexity will grow with you, providing an increased level of accounting support so you are always GAAP-compliant and ready for quick due diligence and fundraising without adapting your books. This includes everything in Gust Launch Financial Management for pre-revenue companies, plus:
Manage customers and leads with HubSpot’s free CRM program, and get up to 90% off marketing software to help grow your business.
Find offices, coworking space, and coffee available 24/7 at your local WeWork, with workplace support and amenities that scale alongside your team.
