On February 12th, Launch Academy, the VRARA Vancouver and Gowling WLG are teaming up to help your emerging tech start-up be investor ready.
SOS! Start-Up Structuring and Shareholder Agreements
For start-ups in any industry, proper structuring and incorporating is critical to investor readiness. A start-up that takes the time to think through and properly set up its share structure early will avoid future disputes and better protect the company and its assets.
Tara Amiri and Braden Lauer from Gowling WLG are coming to Launch Academy on February 12 to discuss the numerous considerations, common questions and pitfalls that come with this "SOS!" moment in an early-stage start-up. The presentation touches on:
Common term sheet terms in early-stage companies; and
Shareholder agreements, and common rights and obligations within.
A well-structured company will attract investors and strategic partners and can be critical to achieving successful financings and exits. The topics set out in this presentation will assist early-stage companies to ask all of the right questions, anticipate common pitfalls, and prepare them for success.
