doola launches DAO offering and partnership with Syndicate:
- doola helps global web2 and web3 entrepreneurs easily set up an LLC, C Corp, or DAO LLC in the U.S. (Wyoming, Delaware, and all other states) with support including EIN, U.S. address, U.S. bank account, payment gateway, and ongoing state compliance and IRS tax filings.
- Syndicate is building web3-native infrastructure and tools to create and manage investing DAOs. Syndicate’s first product is Web3 Investment Clubs, which allows anyone to create and run an investment club on Ethereum.
We’re excited to announce today that we have launched full support for forming DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) LLCs in the U.S., including Wyoming, Delaware, and all other U.S. states. Founders globally can now register a DAO LLC through doola remotely, without visiting the U.S.
We also announced a partnership with Syndicate.io to enable investing DAOs on Syndicate to get legal entities, open fiat bank accounts, submit state compliance filings, and issue K-1 tax forms easily and affordably. This is a game-changer—and it’s just the beginning of deeper integrations and capabilities that they’ll be bringing to businesses on doola and DAOs on Syndicate together.
A DAO is a digitally-native mechanism for coordination. At a fundamental level, you can think of DAOs as internet-native constitutions. But unlike regular constitutions, DAOs run as code enabled by smart contracts, hard-coded rules that are then deployed on blockchain networks like Ethereum. These smart contracts allow a DAO to run “autonomously” without necessarily relying on individual human decision-makers in the organization. This decentralization easily allows online communities to form and coordinate economically. On July 1st, 2021, Wyoming became the first U.S. state to legally recognize DAOs and grant them the same rights as limited liability companies. Many DAOs are now forming in Wyoming and other U.S. states like Delaware.
“Within the next decade, investing will be decentralized, democratized, and community-driven. Syndicate is building web3-native infrastructure that will empower communities to raise, coordinate, and invest capital like never before. However, many investing DAOs need a way to easily create a legal entity, get a U.S. bank account, and manage ongoing state compliance and tax filings. We’re excited to partner with doola so DAOs on Syndicate can do what they love and are best at, investing, while doola handles the rest,” said Ian Lee, Co-Founder of Syndicate.
Arjun Mahadevan, Founder & CEO of doola, said, “Legal legislation enabling the creation of LLCs and C Corporations radically increased the scale at which humans were able to cooperate as well as the amount of capital that organizations could then raise and deploy. DAOs are a digital-first mechanism for coordination and the next step in this evolution. Together, we are bridging Web3 to Web2 by providing the ‘real-world’ tooling DAOs need, including limited liability protection, fiat banking, tax filings, and more.”
doola helps global entrepreneurs form U.S. LLCs, C Corps, and DAO LLCs by supporting customers through the incorporation process so they can confidently collect payments, build credibility, stay legal, and make more money. doola provides company formation, an EIN, a U.S. address and bank account, access to U.S. payments, tax consultations, U.S. tax support, $50,000 in startup perks, and more. Today, hundreds of companies have launched with doola, and these founders didn’t need a U.S. social security number to benefit from doola’s products and services. doola was founded in late 2020 by Arjun Mahadevan and JP Pincheira, with its H.Q. in New York City.
