In most jurisdictions, it is possible to file a trademark application even if your company is not yet incorporated. When filing a trademark application, you will typically be asked to provide the applicant's information, which may include your personal name.

However, it's important to note that the trademark ownership may need to be transferred to the appropriate legal entity once it is incorporated or established. This can typically be done through a trademark assignment.
