Investor's Rights Agreement

An agreement that is frequently required by early, or large, investors in a company. This agreement may include many provisions, such as "First Offer" (the right, but not the obligation, to participate in future fundraising rounds) and "Observer Rights" (the right to observe board meetings). This provision is relevant to shareholders because it may include a separate right of first refusal for investors.
