Convertible Loan Set-up

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.

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 the law.
