Episode 3: Starting a Company? The Incorporation Process and Early Considerations

November 20, 2020

Starting a company takes more effort than you think. Whether you’re incorporating your company, protecting your intellectual property, or hiring employees, it can get costly to clean it up later down the road when you fail to do it correctly the first time. 

Today, we talk about some of the key considerations when starting a company. We’re going over a lot of recurring questions we get on this topic, and hopefully, these answers will shed light on a few things.


In this episode, we will answer some common questions we get like:

  • When should you hire a lawyer?
  • When is the absolute latest that you should hire an attorney?
  • When should I form a legal entity?
  • What is the best type of entity (LLC, S corp, C corp) for my business?
  • What are the required documents when forming a corporation?
