VIMA 2.0 working group
By Faith Sing and Jonathan Tan
We are pleased to be part of the new working group to update the Venture Capital Investment Model Agreements (VIMA) published by the Singapore Academy of Law and the Singapore Venture Capital Association (accessible here).
The VIMA documents provide a starting point for seed rounds and early stage financings, with the aim of reducing transaction costs and time spent closing investment rounds.
As a boutique firm representing both start-ups and venture capital investors in venture capital deals, we are looking forward to contributing and working with other stakeholders to refine and progress the VIMA suite.
Please reach out if you would like to know more about VIMA or contribute to the discussion on VIMA.
