Step One: Forum Selection

Consultation with experienced professionals before you form a new entity can be the difference between efficiently moving from formation to operations and a false start that eats up valuable time and resources. 

If you are seeking venture, angel of even crowd source investment explaining a false start is never comfortable and could jeopardize your success. New companies need not give up equity nor commit to unreasonable expenses to obtain this advice from any new generation law firm.
The first step to consider is often overlooked. That is, the jurisdiction in which to form the entity. Many factors come into play in making this decision including taxation, compliance and liability.

Step Two: Entity Type

Your choice of entity type is one of the most important early decisions you will make for your business. It requires a full understanding of the requirements, benefits and detriments of each type of entity and the options available to you. 

Failure to choose the entity type that best matches your plans can cause delays and expenses which could otherwise be easially avoided. Choosing an entity that is not ideal can prevent you from taking advantage of certain cost savings and other advantages as well as create unnecessary questions in the minds of your investors.
