Templates for Norwegian Startups

Free shareholder agreement, loan agreement, term sheet, NDA and employment agreement templates for Norwegian startups.

You should be spending your time building and selling your product, not drafting standard legal documents. Over the past 5 years, we’ve spent our fair share of time working with founders on such documents, and the templates below are a result of this work. Needless to say, they are all written with entrepreneurs in mind, aka. founder-friendly. Here you go:


Shareholder agreement template

Term sheet template

Loan agreement with cap and discount template

NDA template

Employment agreement template


Developed in collaboration with our partner SANDS. And of course, we do not take any responsibility for any consequence of using these documents. Please consult a professional before signing any of these documents.

Looking for more templates? Altinn has a large collection of document templates for Norwegian companies. Check them out here.
