Venture capital

A Voting Pool occurs when shareholders commit to exercising their voting rights in a specific manner, effectively "pooling" their voting rights. That way majorities within the company can be secured.

Deviating from the agreed-upon voting behavior typically does not affect the validity of the passed resolution but may have consequences among the involved shareholders. Detailed terms are typically outlined in a pooling clause or separate pooling agreement.
