Choice of Entity
Our Startup Series workshop, "Choice of Entity," was led by Ben Armour and Brian Hammell. Choosing the appropriate organizational form is a critical decision to be made by a new startup venture that could have long-term benefits and consequences. Whether founders elect to form a C corporation, S corporation, limited liability company, or other entity involves an analysis of business strategies and complex legal and tax-driven variables, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Guests participated in a discussion of the factors that should inform the choice of entity decision as well as the consequences of selecting a given form.
