CEO & Co-Founder, Gusto
“Catalysts look at how the world works, and see a better way it could work. They don’t accept the status quo, and they don’t just dream or imagine. They get results.”
“General Catalyst has been incredibly helpful. Our company is focused on making life better for people and we share that philosophy with General Catalyst.”
