Protect the dream, inspire the team, with co-founder prenups


Vestd's co-founder prenup mission

In the first flush of startup excitement, nobody wants to think about equity management. And besides, your co-founder is your mate. What could go wrong?

Well, not to bring Eduardo Saverin into this but honestly, he is the ultimate example of what can go wrong. Him and Travis Kalanick, Jerry Yang, Joe King, Antje Danielson…

That's why Vestd is on a mission to get YOU protected from the off, and you'll both (or all) be super up for smashing your goals as a result.

We want to see a world where co-founders are rewarded fairly for their contributions, regardless of what happens down the road.

Use conditional equity to spark healthier, more productive partnerships.
