What makes a PBC different from a regular Delaware corporation?

Pie Chart

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.
