Management and Board Control

Who will have the power to manage the company and spend money?


Vesting Each Cofounder's Shares

Consider what happens if a founder with equity leaves.


Trigger Events

Consider unfortunate events like a founder passing or going bankrupt.


Assigning Intellectual Property

Who owns the IP? Maybe its time to document it in an agreement.


Non-Compete and Non-Solicit Obligations

Can your cofounder leave and compete with the business you are building?
