These are the full set of Class F incorporation documents for a startup based in Delaware.

Certificate of Incorporation

Founders should read. The Institute has created a new class of common stock to protect founders, "Class F." The stock offers Founders a suite of protective provisions, 2:1 Board votes per Founder versus normal Board Members, and 10:1 share votes as compared to normal common. Participating Class F shares vest monthly without a cliff to act as compensation for founding teams, and "single trigger acceleration" allows one Founder to leave without hurting co-Founders.
