Welcome to the New Founders Workbench!

Goodwin Procter is excited to announce Founders Workbench version 2.0, a free, online resource that helps entrepreneurs navigate the legal and organizational challenges faced by start-ups and emerging companies.

Originally launched in 2010 with free legal documents for C-Corporation formation, the site has been completely redesigned and enhanced with a comprehensive set of legal documents for establishing Limited Liability Companies (LLCs). We’ve also added two new web apps: the Capital Calculator, which allows  founders to instantly calculate dilution and liquidity under different financing and exit scenarios, and a Deal Dictionary, to help introduce founders to the often obscure legal and financial terms used by VCs and angels.

You’ll find a wealth of other resources on Founders Workbench including:

  • Document Driver, free, self-service tools for generating key legal documents
  • Our blog devoted to a wide range of legal and industry topics relevant to start-ups
  • Tips and best practices for forming, financing, operating, hiring for, growing, and protecting your company
  • Articles, interviews and videos featuring insights from industry experts including successful founders, venture capital experts and advisors, as well as leading deal attorneys
  • The weekly Founders Flash, with curated links to the web’s best stories, advice and tips for start-up founders

We hope you enjoy the new site and take advantage of its many offerings.
