If you’ve determined that your new venture is going to require outside investment, there are a number of things you can do to make your company more attractive to investors:

Sign up your employees and contractors.  Employment laws place numerous obligations on your company with which you must comply.  For example, employees in Ontario must be paid at least minimum wage. A simple well-drafted employment offer letter and contractor agreement are must-haves for your company.  Investors will ask to see your employee and contractor agreements primarily to ensure that salaries, vacation, benefits and termination entitlements are reasonable.
