Startup Legal Documents Redux

Save the date! Tuesday, July 29, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)

Impact Hub, Kirkland Washington

If you missed last month’s startup legal documents webinar you have a second chance.  Carter has been asked to repeat the lecture for Seattle Angel Conference.  This will be a live lecture so space will be limited.  Registration information at this link.  

This will be a nuts and bolts discussion for recent founders or potential founders.  Our discussion will cover:

  • Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws (with brief discussion of when an LLC might be preferred to c-corporation or s-corporation)
  • Stock Ledger, Capitalization Table, Stock Certificates, and their related function.
  • Shareholder Agreement (including discussion of voting agreements, rights of first refusal, co-sale agreements, drag-along, and other provisions often recommended for startups)
  • Founder Restricted Stock, Stock Option Plans, warrants, and other methods for granting equity
  • Founder and Employee Intellectual Property Agreements and Confidentiality Agreements
  • Non-disclosure Agreements (used for potential business partners and investors)
  • Consulting/Independent Contractor Agreements
  • Convertible Notes and other seed round financing instruments such as Y Combinator SAFE (simple agreement for equity)
