Founders' Agreement

A founders’ agreement also called shareholders’ agreement is a written document that deals with issues such as the relative split of the equity among the founders for the firm, how individual founders will be compensated for the cash or the “sweat equity” they put into the firm, and how long the founders will have to remain with the firm for their shares to fully vest.
