Life at Gust
Gust is located in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, in the heart of New York's Silicon Alley. The company occupies a full floor just three blocks from Penn Station and one block from the Ace Hotel. An open office layout and lots of light provide for a highly congenial-yet-intense work environment with an integrated team that is both dedicated and upbeat.
Gust has been nominated as one of the best tech places to work in New York City, with a no nonsense approach to hiring and great mutual respect among staff and management. Under the leadership of founder and CEO David S. Rose (described by Red Herring magazine as the "patriarch of Silicon Alley", by Crain's New York Business as "the father of angel investing in New York" and by BusinessWeek as a "world conquering entrepreneur") the company has become the catalyst for change throughout the entire early stage finance industry.
