Bird & Bird today announces the launch of twoVenture, an online platform to inform and guide high growth companies in the UK on the legal issues and concerns they may face throughout their business lifecycle.

twoVenture will provide relevant legal resources and documentation, as well as targeted legal and sector-focussed insights and access to Bird & Bird's lawyers. From guiding early stage companies on setting up and protecting their ideas to advising growing companies on how they can take their business to the next level, twoVenture will help companies with their global growth, and ultimate exits whether that be by way of sale, merger or public flotation.

The companies that access and register with twoVenture will benefit from several features designed specifically for their needs including:

  • Guidance notes on the different stages of their lifecycle;
  • Valuable documents from term sheet templates to GDPR compliance checklists and Business Immigration Roadmaps;
  • Topical insights about the current marketplace and trends (including sector-specific issues); and
  • Key contact details for experts at Bird & Bird to discuss further bespoke legal support.

Struan Penwarden, International Head of Venture Capital, and, Shing Lo, Venture Capital partner, comment:

The UK startup and scale up scene has grown astronomically over the past few years, leading to high demand from innovative, fast-growth technology companies for legal services from specialist and solution driven lawyers. twoVenture will support companies by identifying and planning for the legal challenges that accompany rapid growth, and by also providing access to the full team of lawyers at Bird & Bird, the platform will help companies resolve or avoid these challenges. We look forward to continuing to support these companies every step of the way”.
