Why Did We Build Shoobx?
Entrepreneurs have limited resources and may not invest the time or money to attend to all the legal details of a growing company. Those small oversights manifest as costly and messy issues when the company reaches a financing or liquidity event. That’s why we’re here. We take care of the corporate complexity through the whole lifecycle—formation, employee onboarding, legal collaboration, equity management, fundraising, board and stockholder communications, secure data room—so it gets done right to begin with and the entrepreneur can focus on building the company. With Shoobx, you not only have a secure and well-tested platform for managing your corporate legal activity, but you also have a hub of institutional knowledge that will allow you to act on legal events like financing, employment, and ownership.
