The stage of creation of the company is obviously essential for the project leader.

Some project leaders choose to create their own company, using the "standard articles of association" available on the Internet, without these being really adapted to the particular situation of the project.

However, the choice of the company name and legal form of the company, the distribution of power between the founding partners, majority and minority, the powers of the directors, and the rules of governance are subjects that must be carefully examined because they can condition the future of the company.

Similarly, articles of association may sometimes contain "pathological" clauses, preventing, for example, the transfer of shares for several years, and thus the entry of new shareholders .
