Question - Why set up ClearFoundation in New Zealand?
Answer - New Zealand has a stable economy and open Intellectual Property laws that provide fertile grounds for enabling ClearFoundation to grow. Though other jurisdictions offer similar benefits, there were some patently clear reasons to set up in New Zealand.
Question - What are the advantages of organizing ClearFoundation as an Incorporated Society?
Answer - There are several advantages of becoming an incorporated society:
- A society becomes a separate legal entity once incorporated.
- An incorporated society can lease, rent, buy and sell property, borrow money and enter contracts in its own name. No member of the society can have personal rights or interests in any of the assets of the society.
- An incorporated society will continue as a separate entity even though its membership changes.
- Members will not be personally liable for the debts, contracts or other obligations of the society.

Question - Are the core ClarkConnect team members like Peter, Ben and Darryl still involved?
