As the first blog post on our site, we would like to highlight an important consideration for startups that arises at the very beginning of the startup journey. One of the first dilemmas a startup faces is choosing the right type of entity for their business. There are numerous factors that must be considered when choosing the type of entity that is right for your business and frequently investors put a lot of pressure on a startup to form a C-Corporation immediately. However, this may not be the best choice for many startups. The following article summarizes a few of the reasons to forego electing to become a C-Corp and suggests options that allow a startup to work with investors as a limited liability company. http://www.inc.com/ryan-feit/don-t-let-venture-capitalists-force-you-to-convert-to-a-c-corporation.html. Please discuss your entity formation options with an attorney to help choose the right entity for your business plan. This is not intended to be legal advice, nor is it intended to form a lawyer-client relationship.
