Legal Documents Every Startup Needs
Following its incorporation, every startup company needs a variety of essential legal documents in order to launch its vision and conduct its business.
This is a comprehensive agreement defining the legal relationship, responsibilities, and operating procedures that govern each aspect of the startup company. This includes the relationship between the founders themselves and between the founders and the company. A founders' agreement helps to streamline potential conflicts that may develop, provides for conflict-resolution steps, and defines the work and performance expectations of each founder. In addition, this agreement should include non-compete clauses and dissolution or sale-of-company effects.
Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA)
An NDA protects any type of confidential and proprietary information or trade secrets exchanged between the startup and parties involved with the company, such as service providers and potential investors. This is crucial to maintaining the secrecy involving sensitive and valuable company financials, development processes, or other aspects of a company's operation that would be compromised if confidential proprietary information were made public.
Terms and Conditions (T&C)
The primary purpose of the T&C is to protect your business by giving customers a precise description of what they can and cannot expect to receive and depend on from services or products provided by your company. This document reduces potential company liability by establishing clear parameters concerning shipment, provision of service, and payment terms. Moreover, it ensures your online website or application does not violate any regulations or laws applicable to your industry.
Employee Stock Option Plan (ESOP)
To ensure expansion of your startup, you must recruit quality professionals. Startup companies can attract such professionals by offering them benefits in addition to the salaries provided in their respective employment agreements. By allowing key staff the option to purchase company shares in the future, you will not only facilitate the startup’s success, but you will retain valuable key staff as well. The mechanism of such equity-based plans is governed by ESOP agreements.
While not legally necessary, a business plan is typically required if you decide to seek financing or to sell your business. It also helps provide clarity for business operations.
Sports Tech - When Sports Join Up with Technological Innovation
In recent years, tremendous progress has been made in introducing know-how and technology into sports - despite this being a conservative world concerned that the introduction of new powers might compromise the ethos of sportsmanship.
Like in all other spheres of life, knowledge, globalism, and the entrepreneurial spirit have made their way into the closed world of sports. The eagerness to obtain competitive advantages using technological means, coupled with the availability of sporting events in every sports fan’s home, have led both stakeholders in the sports world and broadcasting companies to internalize that the time is ripe for technological innovation in sports.
FromPulse Watches to Playing alongside Ronaldo
Sports technology (sports tech) encompasses a diverse range of categories that serve, on the one hand, to enhance athletes’ performances and to operate smart stadiums, and, on the other hand, to improve viewer experience and to significantly increase broadcasting companies’ revenues.
The field of performance enhancement, which partially interfaces with life science technologies, is one in which technology is used to enhance athletic performance, to manage and contend with injuries, and to control the quality and intensity of athletic training. There are applications that monitor heart rate as well as sophisticated systems that analyze body movement, muscle activity, and the cognitive capabilities of each athlete. These tools are specifically designed to help an athlete optimize his capabilities.
Other, no less fascinating, technologies employ virtual reality and augmented reality. These technologies are already revolutionizing the matches themselves, such as using “goal-line” technology during football games and constructing smart playing fields for training purposes that are equipped with cameras covering the entire field, thus enabling the analysis of every moment in the athletes’ plays.
Furthermore, sports tech will soon revolutionize the entire viewer experience, from projecting holograms of the world’s favorite players in a fan’s living room, to enabling viewers to virtually enter the field themselves and see what football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo sees.
Sports Tech in Israel
Although Israel is not yet a sports superpower, when it comes to sports tech, it is at the forefront of global innovation.
Israel, renowned for its technological excellence, sophisticated entrepreneurial environment, and extensive physiological knowledge - which it acquired while developing the fields of life sciences and security - constitutes fertile ground for sports tech entrepreneurs. In 2016, Intel acquired the startup Replay Technologies, which is developing multi-dimensional video technologies, and even established a new sports division around it (Intel Sport). Play Sight, which has arguably revamped tennis practices by manufacturing smart tennis courts, recently completed another financing round. RSPCT uses advanced technology to improve basketball players’ shooting skills, based on methodologies used to train military snipers and Olympic marksmen. A variety of Israeli technologies were also used during the last Olympic games held in Rio.
Although sports tech is making fewer dazzling headlines than fintech and cybertech, it is an industry under constant global growth and on the brink of significant breakthroughs. Israel, as usual, is poised at the vanguard of technological development and initiatives in the sports tech scene.
