FAQs

Corpora is intended for high-growth Delaware corporations that are in their earlier stages, from formation through Series B.

Corpora’s goal is not to displace attorneys but instead facilitate the collaboration between startups and their attorneys.  We give founders the tools to get simple legal tasks done, while also giving their attorneys the tools to get the complex legal tasks done efficiently.

Corpora’s customer is the startup, which can give access to its account to its founders, attorney, and investors.

There’s little overlap between Corpora and equity management software.  Corpora is doing to company legal documents what equity management software does to cap tables: taking a messy, manually tracked environment and turning it into an organized, automated solution.

Corpora’s infrastructure is built on the AWS platform, utilizing its suite of security and encryption features. We use current industry standards to store and secure our users’ documents. For more information, please visit our security page.
