YC Open-Source Sales Agreement

by Sam Altman2/11/2015

We’ve just open-sourced a sales agreement any company can use.

Though obviously you should use this at your own risk, we’ve had a lot of experience with what makes good and bad sales agreements.

Special thanks to Tyler Bosmeny, James Riley, and Carolynn and Jon Levy for all their work on this!  We hope it helps.
