Capital raise contract templates
When you are raising capital, there are several important legal documents that you need. Here's a checklist:
A convertible note agreement is a short-term debt instrument that allows investors to lend money to a company with the expectation of converting the loan into equity in a future financing round, providing startups with access to early-stage capital while minimizing ownership dilution for founders.
The Shareholders Agreement is a document that sets out the ongoing relationship between a company, and as the term implies, it shareholders. Generally, a Shareholder Agreement will sit alongside the company Constitution, and will often prevail where there are any inconsistency.
A non-binding document that outlines the key terms and conditions of a potential investment or financing agreement between a company seeking capital and the investors or lenders interested in providing the funds. It serves as a preliminary agreement or roadmap for the subsequent negotiations and the finalization of a more detailed legal agreement, such as a definitive investment agreement or loan agreement.
GO BACK TO THE EQUITY TOOLKIT
A vesting agreement is a legal contract or arrangement that outlines the conditions under which an individual or entity gains ownership rights over certain assets, such as stocks, options, or retirement benefits, over a specific period of time.
