Gusto (formally ZenPayroll, Inc.) was founded in 2011 by current CEO Joshua Reeves, CTO Edward Kim, and Tomer London. During an interview with Yahoo! Finance in August 2019, Mr. Reeves claimed that Gusto undertaking an IPO was “not if, but when.” He went on to say that he wouldn’t share a timeline. These comments should not be interpreted to mean that the company is formally pursuing or foregoing an IPO.

Gusto operates at the intersection of cloud computing and human resource management. Their platform provides services ranging from payroll to 401k benefits to health insurance. The company has raised nearly $525 million in Venture Capital funding from investors including Acrew Capital, Akkadian Ventures, Fidelity, AME Cloud Ventures, T. Rowe Price, CapitalG, Aspect Ventures, Ribbit Capital, General Catalyst, Kleiner Perkins, Wasabi Venture Partners, Data Collective, Emergence Capital Partners, Salesforce Ventures, and SV Angel. Per company press releases, Gusto last raised $200 million in July 2019 at a post-money valuation of $3.8 billion.
