Co-Founder Agreement Sample

A Co-Founder Agreement is a contract between the Co-Founders of a business, setting out the ownership, initial investments and responsibilities of each Co-Founder. Take a look at our sample below, to get an idea of what yours will look like.

Your Co-Founder Agreement also safeguards you in the case of a dispute, as it can provide protection to show what the co-founder agreed too. Just like our sample, your agreement should clearly set out the equity participation in your new business.
