The Startup Guide to Starting a Business in the U.S.

By Michael Bell Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Have you ever thought about starting a business in the U.S. but are not sure if it’s possible, complicated, or easy? Setting up a U.S. company is actually not very complicated or expensive, you just have to follow some easy steps and understand a few basic concepts. Often clients think they need an attorney to explain this to them, but in reality they are charging you hundreds of dollars per hour. Instead you could take this online course to learn the same information.

Offered through, the course is 90 minutes long, can be completed at your leisure, and contains the following information:

  • A hands-on approach on the best legal practices
  • A step-by-step guide to create your company in a few hours
  • How to form a U.S. company on a budget
  • 37 lectures with videos, instructions, quizzes, and checklists
  • Templates for all the necessary legal documents

So if you don’t live in the U.S. but want to learn how to set up your own U.S. company, this great course will teach you just that without ever having to travel to the U.S. This special set of lectures have been specifically prepared for foreign entrepreneurs.

By the end of the course you will learn the following:

  • The right type of business entity for you
  • When and in which state to set up your company
  • How many shares to authorize, and their initial par value
  • How to use a 3rd-party business service to do most of the necessary paperwork for you
  • How to conduct the organizational meeting
  • How to manage your company and do a basic tax declaration and franchise tax payment
  • How to avoid common legal pitfalls inexperienced entrepreneurs fall into
  • How to do all of the above if you are not a U.S. citizen and don’t live in the U.S.

The course is currently offering a special Harvard Business Services discount of 50 percent off, making the overall cost $98. (Follow this link for the reduced price.) Once you’ve finished the course, you can go to our easy-to-use online order form and have your company set up in just a few minutes!
