Prenups in Start-ups: How to Write and Frame Contracts Among Founders to Ensure Start-up Success

Goal: In this project, Maggie Neale, Huggy Rao, and Andrea Freund and I are investigating whether and how contracts between founders about roles, norms, and values for the start-up can help start-up success. Initial results suggest that having founders contemplate success a few years down the road (as opposed to failure or a neutral control) and then writing a contract to ensure that success leads to the best results for companies.

We are working with group norm documents for our students in our entrepreneurship education, with various insights and challenges. Could possibly be useful to have a discussion with you around this.
