A few steps may be passed from a pre-seed round to the unicorn. This way is thorny; hence, the process of raising funds requires precision, as well as a clear understanding of what exactly is happening.

You need a lawyer if you want to be sure that negotiation is properly set down in the contract. Smart plan, tailor-made documents and clear understanding of legal issues can be the key to success.

People request our help in different situations and at various stages of investment. Sometimes they are angels and investors, sometimes startups. Their goal is always the same – execute the deal correctly.

Process of the investment depends on the jurisdiction. Such instruments as SAFE or convertible note work only under the legislation of some countries while somewhere the viable action is the joint formation of the authorized capital. It is also essential to be able to sign a flexible and high-quality Shareholders Agreement, which will allow settling the possible options for new investors to enter and exit the startup.

No matter how the deal is settled, the goal is always the same – the startup growth due to the received financing. Contracts and other documents are created to secure this growth and provide the opportunity to raise the next rounds.
