This document allows you to identify all important information about the company, including decision-making processes and public authorities, the distribution of ownership or shares and much more. 5. Get a second opinion. But legal opinions are not the only opinions! It may also be a good idea to ask a fellow entrepreneur or even an advisor to take a look at their foundation agreement. (You can obscure all personal or financial information if you feel more comfortable.) 18. Representations and guarantees. Each founder assures and guarantees that he or she will not participate in another agreement that would limit the founder`s ability to fulfill his or her obligations under this agreement. Each founder assures and guarantees that no third party can assert intellectual property or other property rights that the founder holds with respect to the product or service.

The parties recognize that this agreement constitutes the whole agreement between the parties with respect to the purpose of this agreement and can only be amended by other written agreements signed by all parties. It is recognized and it is agreed that there are no oral statements or guarantees of any kind between the parties.
