Should a tech startup incorporate as an LLC, a C-Corp, or an S-Corp? If so, why?

If you are raising Angel or VC capital, absolutely incorporate as a C-Corp. LLC’s and S Corps create tax problems for Venture Capital Funds and their institutional investors. Don’t go there. File as a Delaware C-Corp. Every major startup law firm will help you do this quickly and cheaply.

At Kruze Consulting, we see founders mess this up all the time. Please, work with a reputable startup law firm like Goodwin, Wilson, Orrick, Gunderson or the many others in the startup ecosystem. A good startup lawyer has a simple incorporation package they will take you through. It’s cheap, easy and keeps you from making simple mistakes like incorporating any other way but as a Delaware C Corp.

I had a great experience working with Kruze Consulting when we raised Series A. They know what VCs need to see, and how to present a startup’s books and finances. If you are going to raise venture capital, you need experts like Kruze.
