  • Who We Are

    We are a small business that is excited about helping other entrepreneurs realize their dreams of creating and growing a successful business. By making business formation easy and affordable, we hope to foster a small business community where owners can connect on a local and national level and help each other grow.

    We launched ZenBusiness because we want to give back and revolutionize the process of forming a business so that more people can realize their dreams and boost the economy.

    Core Values

    Our values create a positive workplace that celebrates diversity and innovation.

    Giving It Our All – We’re a passionate company that puts our best efforts into all that we do. We can plan, execute, and deliver like pros.

    Risk & Rigor – We learn and improve, always. We strive to be stronger and smarter by making data-driven decisions. 

    Opening Ourselves to Everybody – First, we use our ears. We invite fresh and diverse perspectives. We seek wisdom from the unheard.  We honor difference, because we believe in the value of every single person.

    Working for Others – We share a long-term vision to leave the world a better, richer place. We stand up for our customers, colleagues, and communities – especially when it is difficult. We act with integrity and radical transparency.

    Togethering – We’re one team, a supportive culture that shares our struggles and our wins. We are relentlessly jerkless. We champion each other with honesty and kindness. We love fun, the kind that grows from a safe and supportive culture. 

    Hustling Like a Boss– We move like small businesses do: we are fast, nimble, resourceful, and careful. We prioritize growth and skill improvement so we can achieve mastery.
