Where a local presence is required to enable a project, the start-up venture could involve registration of a related Legal Entity. Such an entity will typically be owned or controlled by Stanford or a subsidiary of the University. Depending on local regulations and program needs, the related entity may be a for-profit or non-profit company.

The incorporation and operation of a new legal entity in a foreign country involves expensive and resource-intensive steps; it should only be undertaken when absolutely necessary The guidance on the incorporation of new entities is set out in the Administrative Guide 3.7.1 Establishment and Governance of Legal Entities.
