About this event

Startups and investors are bound by legal agreements, from inception to IPO the legal terms are critical to the development of a company. Although counting on professional legal counsel is necessary, a good understanding of the main legal terms, mechanisms and documents is of great help when investments happen.
An investment round, no matter how small, is more complicated than the typical contract, because it involves multiple parties and multiple agreements required by law. After 60+ financings, JFDI.Asia developed Legalese to streamline the process of early stage investment, reducing a process that usually takes months to days.
BANSEA and TiE are organizing a joint presentation covering the key legal aspects to look at when investing in early stage companies
  1. RHTLaw Taylor Wessing will introduce the key legal terms and documents in a 45m session
  2. Introduction to Legalese, a great tool to produce legal agreements for start-ups, developed by one of our BANSEA Members, Mr. Wong Meng Weng from JFDI.Asia.
Audience: Startup founders; angel investors; associates or partners at early-stage VC funds and crowdfunding services.
Prerequisites: An account on Google Drive. Please bring your laptop to the workshop.
