4 attorney answers
I would recommend consulting with a business attorney about the legal requirements for setting up a business and consult an immigration attorney regarding what immigrant and non-immigrant options are available to remain in the United States and be able to work. A B-2 Visa does not allow you to work in the United States.
It's fairly easy to set up a company, but the better question is, are you trying to work for that company? If so, you will need employment authorization in the US, which you cannot have on a B2 visa as a tourist, therefore you would be wise to consult with an immigration attorney regarding your options.

I recommend that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney about pursuing either an investment visas or possibly an L-1 visa.
