What Are Tag Along Rights?

Tag along rights or "co-sale rights" are legal agreements that guarantee minority stakeholders the right to sell their shares in the company at the same time and under the same conditions as the majority stakeholder. These rights are often used when companies are founded and capitalized because it protects investors and encourages them to buy the company's stock at an early stage. This is especially true for most angel investors, who won't even think of joining unless there are tag along rights.

Why Are Tag Along Rights Important?

Tag along rights protect minority stakeholders by giving them a certain amount of control over their own investments. If
