Indian Agreements

The Founder Agreement v2

The following document is the Founder Agreement. The Founder Agreement provides various protections and benefits, including participation in shared equity upside from their peers, called a "Bonus Pool." Founders must sign Page 9 to enroll in the program. If a Founder has an existing company when entering the program, the Founder must also sign on Page 10 when enrolling, or, when a Founder creates a company in the program, the Founder must sign and upload Page 10.

Indian Corporate Conversion Agreement

Private Limited Partnerships and other kinds of companies in India do not issue Options or Warrants for an extended period of time after incorporation due to expensive reporting requirements. The Founder will sign a special Indian Corporate Conversion Agreement that commits the company to the economic terms of the Option or Warrant without having to issue actual Options or Warrants, allowing the Founder to join the Bonus Pool and graduate from the Founder Institute. The company can issue an Option or Warrant to join the Bonus Pool at a future date, which will invalidate this Agreement.
