Who should NOT use Gust Launch?
If you are planning on opening a local retail business, or a company providing personal services, or even an online shop that you will own and operate yourself, Gust Launch is not the right way to get started. Gust Launch is, instead, optimized for startups that need to be structured for outside investment, fundraising and incentivizing employees with stock options.
Gust Launch is also not available for new ventures that fall into certain industry categories, even if they are planning to be high-growth. These include businesses operating privately-owned ATMs, dealing in precious metals or stones, selling prepaid debit or stored value cards, acting as a professional service provider (lawyer, financial planner, doctor, etc.), acting as a Non-Governmental Organization or a charity, operating a Money Service Business, offering lottery sales to customers, engaging as a virtual currency exchange, engaging in any type of medical marijuana or Internet gambling, operating as a convenience store, restaurant, liquor store, cigarette distributor, parking garage, car/boat/plane dealer, vending machine operator, casino card club, movie theater, pawn broker, hotel, auctioneer.
