Who can use this

The Advisor Agreement is different from a Joint Venture/Partnership Agreement because an Advisor doesn’t own a portion of the Company or isn’t creating an equal partnership. The Advisor is just providing advice for the Company in return for compensation.

The Advisor Agreement is also different from a Consulting Agreement because the Advisor is providing a specific targeted role that may include equity in the Company. Both Consultants and Advisors give advice to Companies, but Advisors are usually engaged at intermittent times for a longer period of time. (For example, every quarter for 12 months.) Consultants are engaged on an ongoing, consistent basis for a shorter period of time. (For example, daily for 1-6 months or 3-12 months.)

An ADVISOR AGREEMENT is an Agreement for a Company that wants to bring on Advisor(s) for growth. They can be crucial in the company’s efforts to build repeat, quality customers. To protect your company, this Advisor Agreement is a FULL agreement that protects the Company ONLY.
