Before any given start-up can secure investment from a venture capital investor, the young company will be scrutinized as part of the legal due diligence review. Amongst other things, a start-up in the AI space will have to prove compliance with applicable law. This likely includes data privacy laws such as the GDPR, laws on copyright and other intellectual property rights and, notably, the EU AI act. Acing the due diligence review is an integral part of most start-up growth journeys. As a law firm focused on venture capital, such reviews are our daily business at YPOG. Let’s have a look at AI regulation and compliance through the eyes of the venture capital world.
