“I was wondering if I should start a company when we were just starting out?”

This is a common question for you at the ideation and “team gathering” stage. We believe that it is not a question of whether to start a company or not, but rather: for a startup project to work, do you have to set up a company? If yes, then of course. At this point, you may also be confused about whether to set up a company in Vietnam or abroad, like Singapore.

In case your startup has a co-founder who is a foreign national. At that time, the procedure will be a bit more complicated when it is necessary to base on your nationality and the startup's business line to have the appropriate procedures and permits for the position of co-founder, employee and employee. immigration to Vietnam.

And yet, many startups have difficulty valuing the effort of co-founders to quantify the composition of charter capital. Most startups will recognize the co-founder's contribution by effort, by working time. Then you should remember, Vietnamese law does not recognize effort as an asset to contribute capital to establish a company.


Nowadays, the business registration process has become easier and easier, you can even do it yourself online. But establishing a startup company is not just business registration, there are many more things that need to be considered and decided by you such as: how much charter capital is okay, which industry to make the most of tax incentives, company name, company seal, shareholder structure so that it is consistent with the strategy of allocating shares, recording capital contributions by effort...

setup a team

Most successful startups are started by a team. That team consists of the co-founders, the employees are hired first and may include advisors and mentors.

One problem most startups face is that they don't have the funds available to pay all the team members. What they have available is the startup's shares and futures. Therefore, you should know, instead of paying with cash, you can pay with things of more attractive value than shares in your startup. A question arises, how much do you pay, or how much the ratio is enough.


You also have many other issues to consider such as: What is the role of each member? How will members benefit from the product? How much and when to enjoy. What if a member withdraws from the team before the deadline? Then in the case, a team member is currently doing the same job, full time at a company  or another organization, would that create a conflict of interest and risk? what risk or not. You will need a solution to this problem.


Many founders have also come to us and asked: what legal documents need to be signed by co-founders that are tight enough to be ready to focus on work?

The most valuable assets of a startup are mainly intellectual properties. It can be software (website/app), trademark (logo), invention, industrial design, a design or a valuable work of art. As an intangible asset, you need knowledge to identify and capture intellectual property and take the necessary steps to establish full and legal ownership of your company. with these properties.

Some of the questions we often answer for startups are: besides registering for protection, is there a way to protect intellectual property? Do you get software protection when you develop it based on open source code? Do intellectual property belongs to the company, the individual operator or the person who created it? If it is an asset, how can it be commercially exploited?

One of the most common disputes is the intellectual property rights dispute right with the co-founders, employees or with other companies. The fact is, not everyone who makes a property with their own hands will have the right to own it. In principle, whoever invests to make that property has the right to own it. Therefore, it is important, necessary and wise to document the regulations on intellectual property owners from the very beginning.
