I am planning to start a website & app that will contain peoples financial data. Which state would be best to protect my business? I've read that Delaware may be best because of the chancery court. Also if the business will start with one owner and employee me and hopefully grow to be acquired by another business or go through IPO. What entity is best for growth? I want to avoid as much taxes and fees as possible seeing that I am a startup of one. I will be selling no physical products just a subscription service and advertising. Any help or direction would be great. Last part is do you think I should apply for a trademark right away?
