Receiving investment is a happy time for any business. It usually takes a lot of work to find the right investor for a business or vice versa. When you do, it is important to have an investment contract that represents the interests of everyone involved. The investor would want to make sure his investment is protected, and the company will want to make sure the funds are delivered smoothly and that the founders have protected their stake in the venture. This makes writing a proper investment contract a critical first step in the business relationship. Clear & unambiguous investment agreement is very significant to establish a win-win situation for the parties involved in any PE, VC and M&A Deals.
