Nellie and Philip Akalp founded their first incorporation service called MyCorporation.com in 1997 then sold it in 2005 to the makers of Quickbooks and Turbo Tax and at that point were able to retire. However, they soon found that they hated retirement and needed other avenues to keep them happy. Since they were entrepreneur's at heart, they started another incorporation service which is what they have today - CorpNet. Philip is actually a licensed lawyer by trade; however, he now handles the internet marketing, product development and more at CorpNet, which he prefers over his former trade. Over the years the couple has helped business owners form over 100,000 corporations and LLC's in every state of the U.S. They believe in honest, upfront pricing; therefore, all their order forms and product pages clearly display their fees and the fees that will need to be paid to state agencies as well. And they never mark up the state fees just to make a profit.
