READY TO START?

Setting up your company the right way is what General Standards does best.

We structure companies the right way the first time, so that you have all the features relevant for a startup. We make it easy to issue equity to founders, investors and team members. We place a strong emphasis on defining the roles of founders and implementing share vesting, ensuring that commitments made in the first few years are linked back to shareholdings. This critically includes documenting the services founders will provide to the company, and ensuring that IP is transferred into the company from the outset.

 

Our experience has been honed through working with thousands of startup ventures as they start, grow, raise money, hire people and make important decisions. We have seen things go great, and not-so-great. We put all that learning into the way we setup companies. Our documentation thinks about the future, with a suitable mix of flexibility and certainty. We truly understand that the dynamics of a startup on day-one will be very different to day-one-thousand.

We also ensure that founders themselves are set up correctly to protect the value in the assets they are building.

Your first (free) consultation with General Standards will help you identify any other items that you may need, such as documenting any funding be provided by the founders, managing external contractors or making sure your business name is available in the markets you wish to operate.

 

On top of the expert advice, the process of setting up your company with General Standards is fast and predictable. You schedule a “work window” on a day of your convenience, during which General Standards will consult with you and prepare the first drafts of your documents, meaning you usually receive your first drafts of the documents within a few business days from your consult. Most startups are fully setup within a week.
