What it is

With a convertible loan, an investor lends a certain amount of money to your startup with the right to convert the loan into shares usually for a discount at the next financing round.

Convertible loans are now widely used internationally and allow for a ‘continuous fundraising’ model. They’re a great way to raise money quickly without having to line up all investors at once and negotiate all terms of a financing round.

How long it takes

With our help, you can set up your convertible loan within one business day.

Who it is for

The main reasons to opt for a convertible loan are:

  • You want to postpone the valuation discussion as you believe you can get a much better valuation later.
  • Your startup does not have the time to find investors and negotiate a full financing round.
  • You only wish to raise a small amount right now.

Best-in-class standard

For our best-in-class standard templates, we take existing documents from at least 5 different sources and create a derived version with modular options.

The draft standard is then reviewed by 5+ legal professionals and first tested with beta clients.

After launch, the standard is continuously improved and adjusted to changes in law.

Efficient processes

To help you solve legal challenges fast, we leverage technology and optimise processes. In addition, we create supporting material in form of guides and FAQs for you to have all information you need easily accessible.

Personal, tailored support

While we believe in the power of technology and high quality document standards, dedicated personal contact and tailoring to your specific needs is equally important for all our projects.
