We recently collaborated with early stage venture capital fund TRIVE to run ‘Startup Law 101: Founders agreements, Seed Rounds and IP’.

Our Sarah Yen and Kristen Lim from ShookLin&Bok were the keynote speakers, and it was awesome to see registration maxed out and a full room on the day. There’s clearly a desire to start up right in the Singapore startup ecosystem!

Sarah Yen kicked off the evening with a run-down of founders’ agreements and founder vesting. She also covered typical terms in a seed round,as process, timing and cost.

Kristen Lim then covered the basic concepts of intellectual property to help founders get comfortable with managing intellectual property at a cash strapped startup.

Our audience was engaged through the end, with over 20 questions via Pigeonhole, our online question portal. Sarah and Kirsten fielded questions from the portal and then individual questions for a full hour afterwards.

We love getting amongst the community and being able to share what we’ve seen in the industry. We want to give founders information and tools to make it easier to look after the legal basics, without needing to untangle things down the line.

A big thanks to Trive for help in organising our session as well as JustCo Marina Square for giving us the space.  If you missed it, don’t fret. Check out our online legal resources to help you with your legal basics. We’ll also be answering the questions we received and posting them online soon.
