Startup Acquisition: How to Get Your Startup Acquired

  • 4 min read

There are many great reasons to start your own company, including the desire to be your own boss, the desire to make something happen, passion about your product or service, or even the desire to make more money. A successful startup will need the following:

Net 30: What Is it?

Net 30 is an invoice payment phrase that means the customer must pay the entirety of their bill in 30 days or fewer. Often if the customer does not pay within the 30 day period, interest is charged.

Not all clients will understand what net 30 means, so it is important to make a note somewhere on the invoice to let first-time clients know what is expected. If you have not received payment and the deadline for the net 30 payment is approaching, it is good practice to issue a reminder to your customer.

Advantages of Offering Net 30

  • As the seller, offering Net 30 to your customers shows that you trust them. Some large companies and government agencies demand Net 30 terms from their suppliers, so offering Net 30 terms to your clients allows you to maintain a competitive edge against other businesses in your niche.
  • As the customer, Net 30 is great because it allows you to conserve your c

What is Corporate Personhood?

Corporations have some of the same rights as people. This is known as corporate personhood. It is the idea that a corporation has its own rights. Corporate personhood has existed much longer than many people realize. 

Corporate personhood is not just for large companies. As long as a business is incorporated, it  can benefit from corporate personhood. Organizations that benefit from corporate personhood can include:

  • Large businesses
  • Small businesses
  • Churches
  • For-profit organizations

Because it bought land, the Catholic Church is one of the earliest examples of corporate personhood.

Many people are against the idea of corporate personhood. In their opinion, companies are not people and do not deserve the same rights as a regular person. However, this leg
