How do I enable auto-sign mutual NDAs?

How to enable and disable automatic non-disclosure agreement (NDA) signatures

Last updated: January 5th, 2024

When buyers request startup access, they must sign a mutual non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with you to protect the information you share. 

You can sign this NDA when approving buyers manually. But we recommend setting up auto-sign to save time. You can choose to auto-approve access requests too. 

Some sellers choose to manually approve access for more control over their buyer pool. But if you want to give every interested buyer a deeper look at your business, the mutual NDA protects both of you – and you might you sell faster as a result.

Follow the steps below to learn how to enable and disable auto-signing NDAs.
