You only have your own money and capital to invest in opening the business.

Unlimited Liability

You can lose more than you

invested. If the business goes down... you're going down with it!

Limited Life

More capital and credit available

You have someone to split the cost of opening the business with! Whoop whoop.

Split workload
You have another partner to help carry to workload, so you don't have to work as much.

Shared Losses

If the business goes down, you have someone else to help cover the losses.
Shared Outcome

You share the risk, then you share the rewards. You share profits and decision-making capabilities.

Unlimited Liability

You can lose more than you

invested. If the business goes down... you're going down with it!

Limited Life
When you or the partner dies or chooses to leave the business, the partnership dissolves.
How a partnership is operated must be decided on by the partners.
A corporation is
by stockholders who have purchased shares, or a "piece" of the company. Each share owned is equivalent to one vote.
A corporation is
by a board of directors who oversee the day to day operations.
