One person Company (OPC) is a private limited company and hence eligible for startup benefits as laid down by the government under the startup India scheme. However, the biggest problem in this form of business is that it cannot raise funding from a venture capital or angel investor by selling its stake/shares.

A one person Company cannot sell its stake because there can only one shareholder in the company.
