What’s a deed of adherence to the early stage shareholder agreement and when do you need one?
Use this deed when you’re onboarding a new investor to your business and you already have a shareholder agreement that the new investor is happy to sign up to.
Especially in the early stages of your company’s existence and with early investment rounds, investors are often happy to sign a deed of adherence to your existing agreement, so that they have the comfort of knowing they are on the same terms as other shareholders.
