How to use the Growth Centre

Whilst we have designed our Growth Centre to be as user-friendly as possible, we have included so many resources that it can be difficult to know where to start.  We recommend the following approach:

 1. Read the "Start-up checklist" (Document GR1) in our INTEGRAL document suite.  This lists many of the key issues that you will need to consider, directs you to more detailed analysis and cross-refers to the relevant sections of our template heads of terms and - where relevant - company constitutional documents.

2. Consider preparing heads of terms.  If you are setting up in business with others, we suggest you document the key terms of your venture in a short set of heads of agreement.  We have provided a suggested template at Document GR2 of our INTEGRAL document suite.

3. Choose a business structure: If you have not already done so, read the factsheet "Choosing a business structure" in our Start-Ups Clinic.

4. Setting up a company? If you have decided to form a private limited company, read our factsheet "Incorporating a Company", which also introduces our INTEGRAL template company constitutional documents.  If you choose to adopt a different business structure, we are happy to provide a fee estimate for producing bespoke partnership or LLP members agreements.
