As an international founder, doola has two main recommendations.
1. For international founders that are using their own funds for their business or see themselves as classical “small businesses,”, we recommend starting an LLC. The LLC has much simpler compliance and tax situations than a C Corp, as well as determining a clear ownership split between owners.
2. For international founders that are seeking to raise funds or are anticipating high growth, we recommend starting a C Corp. While C Corps are generally more complex, it opens the business to new types of investors and generally has more opportunity for growth.
