Thank you for getting the company set up super fast. I think it happened efficiently. The team is there to email if you have questions too. The dashboard accurately displays what is completed and what to expect.

Incredible Service. This was a fast, easy, hassle-free experience, I won't say it matched my expectations, NO, It exceeded my expectations and amazed me. They're the best of the best. So happy that I chose Firstbase and confident I'll make another round for another venture.

Wow, @tryfirstbase is really fantastic. Set up the corp, EIN, registered agent, bank account through/via them and 1.5 months later I'm way more organized than I ever was.
