When you first incorporate your company, you should have all the founders sign the IP Assignment Agreement.
If your company is already established and the founders have never signed an IP assignment agreement, then have them do so immediately.
It’s important to ensure any intellectual property created for the company is actually owned by the company, not by the founder that created it.
Investors may require that all the founders of a company have assigned the intellectual property to the company.
Start early: It’s common to have all founders assign their intellectual property immediately after incorporation.
Be Consistent: Ensure this agreement does not contradict anything in an existing agreement.
