"At Y Combinator, we have seen an explosion of interest from founders over all the world starting tech companies. No matter where they are physically, these founders usually want to incorporate their companies as US corporations. Unfortunately, the process of starting a US corporation from outside the US is still too clumsy, and that’s what Firstbase.io is solving. They are leading the charge in helping new founders navigate the challenging steps to becoming a legitimate business in the U.S. We’re thrilled to support Firstbase.io’s mission and believe they will have a massive impact on new businesses being started around the world."

Do you have hidden fees?

There are never any hidden fees — all government fees are built into our pricing.
