D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center is holding a free virtual legal clinic to help aspiring small business owners and nonprofit founders go over the legal requirements for starting up. This is not a training. Attorney volunteers will meet with you one-on-one and walk you through several questions regarding your organization’s current status, in order to identity your next steps toward becoming a legal entity. This virtual event will take place on Thursday, June 1, 2023.
**This event is only for organizations seeking to incorporate or organize in Washington, D.C. that have not organized already in another state.**
Entrepreneurs and aspiring small business owners can learn about the different entity types and the requirements for each, internal governing documents, registering and licensing their business in D.C., and other necessary steps to get their business going.
Nonprofits can learn how to incorporate with DLCP, the process for obtaining 501(c)(3) status from the IRS, and early stage corporate governance best practices.
