Sites like AngelList help startups and investors meet, but where do they go from there? Gust is a platform that goes beyond connection to help them manage the relationship: investors can browse opportunities, share deals with other VCs, and communicate with their portfolio, while startups can find investors and raise new rounds of funding.

Internet exec Tom Pace, who once worked at Dow Jones and as president of Infogate (sold to AOL in 2003), is the president and COO of Gust. At our SXSW #StartupLife Celebration last weekend, he opened up about Gust, whether crowdfunding is too hyped, and why he loves his job. Watch the video with Tom Pace of Gust.
