Click here to visit the SAFE Financing Documents page on Cooley GO Docs

Startup accelerator and Cooley client Y Combinator (commonly referred to simply as “YC”)  released a set of financing documents (referred to as SAFE, or Simple Agreement for Future Equity). We are now making them available for you to generate your own customized set for free.

We will continue to make forms and other documents available as we continue to receive feedback about the library of documents on Cooley GO, and what additional documents you would find useful.

Note that we were not involved in the preparation of these forms and are not necessarily endorsing any form, or the use of those forms either generally or in any specific instance, since all have their pros and cons, and are just one organization’s opinion of what is, or what should be, a “market” standard document. We recommend that you get advice from a lawyer to help you understand the meaning of the documents, how they may impact you, which forms are appropriate for your company, etc.  But if you know what you want to do, we think you and your attorney should have a simple way of generating the documents.

As always, we welcome your feedback on this service or any other aspect of Cooley GO (you can click the call-out box on the right of the screen or mobile users contact us via email).
