Templates and resources

You should be spending your time building and selling your product, not drafting standard legal documents. Over the past 10 years, we’ve spent our fair share of time working with founders on such documents, and the templates below are a result of this work. Needless to say, they are all written with entrepreneurs in mind, aka. founder-friendly. Here you go:


Developed in collaboration with our partner DLA Piper.

We do not take any responsibility for any consequence of using these documents. Please consult a professional before signing any of these documents.

For legal questions, please contact: Stig Nordal

Rules of Engagement

StartupLab is a facilitator, connecting startups with established corporates. StartupLab will provide guidance to both startups and corporates to ensure a good and transparent process. We recommend that both the startups and the corporates discuss, understand and agree on the “Rules of Engagement” before they meet.
