Selecting The Right Entity for Your Startup

November 16, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Justin Borrowdale, attorney at Weintraub Tobin, will help you navigate the process of determining the right legal entity for your business.

One of the first major decisions a startup founder makes is selecting an entity structure. Each type of entity has its own advantages and disadvantages. The most advantageous choice of entity, or combination of entities, will depend on your particular business, your tax situation, the nature of your current and future financing needs, and other factors.

In this session, Justin Borrowdale, attorney at Weintraub Tobin, will help you navigate the process of determining which legal entity type is right for your business.

Points to be Covered:

  • Entity types – LLC, corporations, partnerships, sole proprietorship
  • Which entity type is best for your business?
  • What entity type do investors prefer?
  • How does your exit strategy impact entity selection?
