Founders Agreement

A Founders Agreement is a contract between the founders of a company that outlines the rights, responsibilities, and ownership of each founder. It typically covers issues such as the division of equity, decision-making processes, roles and responsibilities, intellectual property ownership, and dispute resolution mechanisms. The goal of a Founders Agreement is to prevent conflicts and ensure that all founders are on the same page regarding the direction and management of the company.
