Before you can use all the capabilities that Shoobx offers, you must set up your account. This process is called Onboarding.
Shoobx Onboarding is a step-by-step process that involves inputting information from several key documents so that you can use your Shoobx account and maintain an accurate and complete record of your business information.
What is Onboarding?
For companies that didn't incorporate on Shoobx, the self-guided onboarding process allows them to populate their accounts with key data and company documents. This means a company can analyze its full corporate legal history, get organized, and identify issues in its corporate legal documents.
You can easily get your company information and documents into Shoobx during the onboarding process, and the workflow will provide the help you need every step of the way. We'll walk you through inputting details about the company's employees, equity, fundraising, and other key actions so that your company can quickly get up and running on the platform.
How Can Onboarding Be Useful Before a Financing?
Shoobx onboarding will help you identify missing documents. This can be a helpful starting point for a company that is motivated, with a lawyer, to address those gaps (issues with incomplete documentation, cap table inaccuracies, etc.). This is especially helpful if a financing or other key event is on the horizon.
Who is involved?
Depending on what stage your company is at, you may choose to manage this process differently. If you are a 3-person company, the founder might complete the entire onboarding workflow. In a 50-person company, the founder might invite the head of HR to fill out the HR-related pieces of onboarding, the CFO to fill out the equity and finance-related pieces of onboarding, etc.
Can I Get My Lawyer Involved in Onboarding?
You and your lawyer can work together to get your company set up on Shoobx—you decide if you want to run the process or step in to assist your lawyer as needed, or vice-versa!
