A Delaware C Corporation is the preferred entity for (most) startup investors, and provides a strong foundation for your company. This state provides businesses with:

  • Founder-friendly legislation that makes it simple for founders to register their businesses there.

  • An effective corporate court system for resolving shareholder and investor conflicts.

  • When calculated correctly, Delaware has one of the lowest tax rates in the United States.
