Questions

We are spinning out a company based on a platform technology from a university. My co-founders are the co-inventors and professors at the university. They will act as scientific advisors. We need to form a company to apply for some non-diluting funds. We recognize as we continue with customer discovery and R&D that our business may need to differ from our original business vision and that the people we would need to add to our team is not certain. I'll be the only full time member, and CEO. My question boils down to: - With a lot of uncertainty on the path forward, how can we form a company that allows for us to be flexible in terms of equity, control, and business model? - Would flexibility be a liability? - Would it make sense to form a LLC to begin, and handle these issues when converting to a C-Corp? Is that even a possibility?

I recommend you tio develop a Balanced Score Card simplified version.
It is one of the best tools for Strategy development and Focus on Excelent execution.
It can be combined with other tool line SWOT analysis and Projects Perfect Execution.
