Startup Shell Proud to Join the Stripe Atlas Network

Partnership set to provide an invaluable service to early-stage startups.


COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Startup Shell is proud to announce its induction into the Stripe Atlas Network of incubators and accelerators. Stripe Atlas is a new initiative launched by Stripe designed to eliminate barriers to startup creation surrounding the initial legal formation of business ventures. Stripe Atlas takes the hassle out of creating a business venture by filing the paperwork to create a Delaware C-Corporation, obtain an EIN from the IRS, and opening a bank account.

According to Stripe, “Starting a company can be needlessly complicated—lengthy paperwork, bank visits, legal complexity, numerous fees, and non-obvious decisions about what services to use. We built Atlas to make this easy: a tool to handle everything involved in establishing an internet business. It’s available to entrepreneurs everywhere.” Startup Shell looks forward to a prosperous partnership with Stripe in this initiative.

Parties interested in using Stripe Atlas to form their business should contact Startup Shell via email at hello@startupshell.org for additional information or to request a referral.

About Startup Shell - Startup Shell is a student-run non-profit incubator based in College Park, Md. on the University of Maryland campus. Founded in 2012, Startup Shell has seen approximately 60 startups develop in its space and growth to a community of over 200 undergraduate and graduate students and alumni.
