Our story

“I’ve worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs as an attorney, and I can tell you one thing: most people get scammed when they start. It ends up costing them much more, because they didn’t set up the right way. We help entrepreneurs avoid that trap. It’s liberating.”
Spencer | Partner at Stellar Formation

“Maxime Germain and I started a business together before this. Spencer Wolff was a lawyer, a dear friend, and the one we went to for startup legal advice.
Together we started Stellar Formation. As a repeat founder, I’ve been through many incorporations. I’ve paid sometimes $900, sometimes $3,500 for it. Until Stellar Formation, I didn’t know what it meant and how my company worked.”
Kenneth | Partner at Stellar Formation

“When you start a business, you need to understand it. It shouldn’t be this shiny black box that this gifted and intimidating craftsman (a lawyer) made for you. You should understand the ins and outs because you’ll own it and will live in it for a while.”
Maxime | Partner at Stellar Formation

We charge a flat $499 for single founders and $899 for multiple founders, which includes everything you need.

We set up your company in the right way for you, so your business is bullet proof. A lot of other sites do a less than stellar job at doing so.

Why does it cost $499 to form your company with us? We’re transparent, so here’s why: stellarformation.com/pricing

Our competition scams

You’ll find plenty of website offering you LLCs starting at $179.

Chances are, you will either end up paying much more
or won’t be set up in the right way.


Here are a few typical ways this happens:

Excluding “State Fees” from the price.
Most websites you will find will not tell you that you have to pay State Fees until the very last step, and it’s usually too late. It’s a game changer because there is no getting around State Fees and they cost between $194 and $200 depending on the type of company you form. Our $499 price includes state fees and you can find the full breakdown of the costs on our pricing page. Transparent. Simple.


Bad Bylaws.
Many websites use bylaws templates that are poorly written and will not protect you properly in a legal dispute. We’ve seen countless clients find out - only too late - that their company’s bylaws are useless.


Poor Equity Split or No Vesting.
Most websites will not offer the proper documentation to split your company with your partners and avoid unnecessary partner disputes.


No IP Assignment.
Most websites will not offer IP Assignment, or they will do so as an extra service at a high premium. In fact, IP Assignment is crucial for your company. This makes sure the company owns all the intellectual property (IP) created by its founder(s). This protects you, your partners and the IP.
