Corporations can not incorporate themselves. The parties who incorporate a business are known as “incorporators” or “promoters”. An incorporator need not be a person. An incorporator may also be another corporation.
Typically, the promoter names the initial board of directors of the corporation immediately as part of the incorporation process, but if not, the incorporator has plenary power to manage the corporation until such time as the initial board of directors is appointed.EDIT ANNOTATED ITEM INFORMATION DELETE ANNOTATED ITEM
