The issue

Start-ups carrying out early funding rounds are increasingly turning to online products for legal support. Why not? They are a cheap, commoditised option – and start-ups don’t want to spend scarce resources on expensive lawyers.

However, being confident you have the right investment documents in place is important. As is finding an affordable, flexible solution, which covers all of the necessary requirements avoiding longer-term problems.

To meet that need, Boodle Hatfield has developed Launchpad: an easy-to-use programme that reduces the time it takes to draft the required investment documents for your funding round. As part of the package, you will also receive supporting legal advice from high-quality lawyers at a sensible price point.
