Dianna has experience working with organizations at all stages of their growth, but start-ups have a unique set of requirements. Corporate formation and choosing an entity and governance structure is vitally important. Many founders are in the honeymoon phase during the start-up phase of their business. Taking time to set up a good business structure is critical, not only to minimize taxation of any profits, but also because the formation documents will provide the structure for the company to grow. It’s important to be sure that your documents have set up a structure that will be attractive to investors, but will also protect your own investment in the company. It’s also important that the governance structure you create is a structure that will promote growth and help the founders and later members of the corporation resolve disputes without bitterness and acrimony. A good corporate structure can also go a long way toward promoting creativity and a positive corporate culture.
The start-up phase is also a time when it’s vitally important that you review your contracts carefully and balance the desire for long term guaranteed income and flexible pricing that will permit future growth and expansion.
Employment arrangements can also be critical as well as regulatory compliance and start-ups need to put programs in place to make sure that the company is complying with employment law and any regulations specific to their industry.
