What Is the Legal Documentation Needed to Start a Web Startup?

You’ll want to form your business. Either an LLC, C-Corp or S-Corp for most web startups.

Get your post incorporation documents in order if you ever plan on taking investors and/or hiring people. This includes stuff like bylaws, initial board consent, restricted stock purchase agreement, confidential information and assignment agreements etc.

Decide whether you want to trademark your company name. 

Create a founders agreement if you plan on bringing or currently have co founders.

Figure out whether you want to file a provisional patent if you believe your software is truly unique.

 If you plan on raising money from investors, decide whether you’ll do a convertible note or equity round. If convertible note, you’ll want an attorney to draft up a convertible promissory note, note purchase agreement, and board consent.
