The Singapore Academy of Law has launched a five-part webinar series on the theme „VIMA Series in Early-Stage Fundraising.“ These 5 modules will provide a deep overview of a wide range of topics related to start-up venture capital collection for start-ups, future venture capitalists and legal advisors. The curriculum was designed to provide participants with the sufficient knowledge necessary for a fundraising agreement and the expectations necessary to ensure that each agreement results in a win-win outcome for all parties.  In 2017, in Singapore, 112 agreements yielded more than $1.2 billion in venture capital investments. See KPMG press release, „2017 Global Venture Investment Investments Decade High of $155 billion after a strong fourth quarter“ (January 18, 2018). This standard sheet should be adapted to take into account the capital structure of the company (including all rights that existing investors may have). Founders and investors can use VIMA to initiate investment discussions and focus on important business points by adapting all conditions (or inserting additional conditions) as required in the documents. Note: The assumptions used for the schedule, the subscription contract and the shareholder contract were as follows during the design process: 1) investors take a significant minority stake in a growing company based in Singapore, 2) the investment vehicle is series A preferred shares, 3) the documents are governed by Singapore law Singapore being the forum for any dispute resolution. These documents were developed for use in a Series A funding series. They provide for a significant investment, entirely or partially made by fund investors. You don`t lend yourself to seed investment and you`ll find more information on helping entrepreneurs in this area in the drop-down tab on the right. Venture capital investments are becoming increasingly popular and widespread in Singapore and Southeast Asia, and this trend is expected to continue. Each investment may be unique, but founders and investors (and their respective advisors) don`t need to spend time and cost preparing and negotiating any investment from scratch, especially for start-up financing.
In order to reduce transaction costs and reduce friction during the negotiation process, Investment Venture Capital Agreements (VIMA) offer a series of models for use in seed cycles and start-up financing.
