Topic: Start-up Assistance
Starting a new venture can be daunting. Everything from managing payroll to garnering customers can be challenging. A first step to launching on the right foot involves picking the right entity type to incorporate your business. This decision can affect everything from future fundraising plans to the level of risk you may personally face. Once incorporated, the business has certain filings and responsibilities it is required to maintain. The N.C. Secretary of State provides many resources including online forms, resource guides and e-mail alerts to assist small business owners and entrepreneurs with incorporation. In this session, a representative from the N.C. Secretary of State’s Office can provide general rules of the road on Incorporation and Filings and Responsibilities.
