Helpful Templates From The NVCA

Post placeholder image

The NVCA (National Venture Capital Association) is an excellent source of venture capital related legal templates, including:

  • Term Sheet
  • Stock Purchase Agreement
  • Certificate of Incorporation
  • Investor Rights Agreement
  • Voting Agreement
  • Right of First Refusal and Co-Sale Agreement
  • Management Rights Letter
  • Indemnification Agreement

I particularly like the term sheet template.  In some cases it gives you the verbiage for a number of alternatives so you can see how this may vary from least to most egregious (since we’re talking legalese).  If you have just been offered a term sheet or are in pursuit of one, this can be very helpful for understanding what may be seen as the "norm."

VCs: Any terms that you use that you find missing in this?
Entrepreneurs: Any terms that you find particularly confusing?
