Invest2Innovate (i2i) has launched a Startup Toolkit to support the entrepreneurial community of Pakistan.
Having already launched the i2i Investor Toolkit in 2016, the i2i team has now unveiled the i2i Startup Toolkit, a 101 guide for Pakistani startups that can help entrepreneurs to execute their ideas successfully.
i2i Startup Toolkit
It is a challenge to turn a startup into a thriving business. A huge number of startups fail to take off due to limited access to legal advice, poor decision-making and lack of know-how.
The i2i Startup Toolkit is an effort to combat the lack of relevant information which could save founders from making mistakes. It is a comprehensive guide on legal procedures and the entrepreneurial journey, created in collaboration with the Co-founder of Wukla, Mubariz Siddiqui.
Some of the most important topics covered in the i2i Startup Toolkit include:
- Registering a company in Pakistan
- Types of businesses and legal entities
- Applicable taxes on businesses
- Idea protection and Intellectual Property rights
- The due diligence process – what investors demand
- Types of investments
- Contracts and agreements
- Company valuation
- Term sheets and their significance
Co-founder of Easy Insurance, Fahad Awan says:
This startup toolkit has all the relevant legal information that a founder seeks during his/her journey. It’s a must read to have the legal aspects of your startup covered.
