But first thing first. Lets see what are the criterias to start your Linkedin Company page:
- You must have a personal LinkedIn profile set up with your true first and last name.
- Your profile is at least seven days old.
- Your profile strength must be listed as Intermediate or All Star. (If you have the new UI, the "profile strength" is temporarily unavailable.
- You must have 50 connections on your profile.
- You're a current employee of the company and your position is listed in the Experience section on your profile.
- You have a company email address (e.g. email@example.com) added and confirmed on your LinkedIn account. Please make sure the email is an individual company email address (i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org) and not a distribution list nor a role-based email address (ex: webmaster@, postmaster@, admin@, etc.) as we do not send email confirmation to alias email addresses.
- Your company's email domain is unique to the company.

There is a quite hidden tool to create a Linkedin Company page, here:
It isn't that easy!!! This is what Linkedin says:
Your LinkedIn Company Page can only be removed by designated Admins of the page or the LinkedIn customer support team. The page must have fewer than 10 employees affiliated with the page.
Unlike your personal account, a Company Page affects all employees and not a single person or entity. If your company is no longer in operation or if it has been rebranded, please keep in mind that it does not mean you should remove the page from LinkedIn. Often times, current and former employees of the company associate that Company Page with their work experience reference to improve their LinkedIn profile. It is for this reason that LinkedIn Support does not remove Company Pages with more than 10 current employees because it affects the accounts of LinkedIn members.
If you would still like a Company Page removed, or if there is an issue with a page that was recently deactivated, please contact us with your question.
- Once the Company Page is removed, the company name and email domain won't be available for future use unless you contact us again.
- We don't remove the Company Pages of acquired companies when a company is acquired.
- Instead of removing a Company Page, you can update the name or other information.
- Changing the Company Name also changes the profile work experience for the company's current and former employees and can confuse Followers of your page, so we recommend posting a Company update notifying members before making the change.
