A Founders’ Agreement is the legal agreement between the founders of a business. It documents the arrangements between founders and will be a key area of review by any incoming investors. A Founders’ Agreement is also important if and when one of the founders leaves the company.
ScaleUp’s Founders’ Agreement document generator will produce the key terms as a starting point for your company. You should contact your lawyer before finalising your Founders’ Agreement, especially if you have particular vesting arrangements in mind (e.g. different vesting schedules for each founder).
The ScaleUp Founders’ Agreement assumes that the Founders have already incorporated a company to carry on the business. If you have not yet incorporated a company, please see our Article We’re going into business together. Do we need an agreement?.
