It’s been a few months since we heard from JC Glancy and Rafael Lopez at Counsl, so we decided to check in and see how the plans to move to Wilmington are going.
The process has been slower than they had hoped, but Glancy and Lopez plan to have at least one employee working out of The Mill by the end of September. The team at Counsl plans to relocate at least one or two engineers to Wilmington, with the hopes of hiring anywhere from two to four employees once they arrive.
There will be an initial focus on engineering and operations. “We’ve transitioned to completely automate the business formation documents and the startup suite,” said Glancy. “Firms of all shapes and sizes are going to absolutely love it. We’re currently in testing stage and our software is in a stable beta stage.”
The company has had to postpone plans to meet with Rep. John Carney (D-Del.) until late summer while Lopez pursues a global deal (details are confidential at the moment).
“We’re working on a global deal right now that will open a lot of doors, I will be ready once this deal is closed,” Glancy said. “It’s just not the right time yet. We would be relocating nine of our employees, so the timing needs to be right.”
