Public Benefit Corporations

Form your startup as a Delaware public benefit corporation, for added flexibility to make your startup a force for good. Clerky products help you form your PBC startup safely, so you can go on to raise money and hire people without issue.

What makes a PBC different from a regular Delaware corporation?

Regular Delaware corporations are obligated to maximize stockholder value.

Delaware public benefit corporations must balance stockholder value with one or more specified public benefits, as well as the interests of anyone materially affected by its conduct.

"We've been impressed with the focus Clerky has on quality, and are thrilled that responsible startups now have a simple and efficient turnkey solution for embedding their values into their corporate structure from day one."

"It was a no-brainer to use Clerky for Crowdbotics. We used Clerky products extensively at my last startup, where we raised over $20 million - our paperwork from Clerky went through several rounds of investor due diligence with no issues."
