At about 5 minutes into this video the dev talks a bit about the lifepath differences, and when describing the Corpo the example he gives is someone who was fired from their position in a corporation.
The devs have also stated that as of right now at least V has a different start point in the game based upon their lifepath. Street Kid is presumably somewhere in the city and Nomad likely in a caravan out in the badlands, but what about the Corpo? I wonder if the start point will be V getting his/her walking papers.
I really hope it's not as boring as that. Disgruntled ex-Corpo?... So lame. Hopefully that life path has us starting out actually in the mucky muck and we get to decide whether we're going to keep going until we take over, or bail and fight against the machine."...who got fired from a job or something". Makes me wonder if that was simply a figure of speech with the "...or something" while that background that you were fired is already set, or if they just don't know yet and did not finalize that, so perhaps you quit. Minor details you may say since you are "ex-Corpo" either way, but I'll be happy to see how this background plays out.

I'm kinda surprised that Nomad isn't getting more love in these polls.
wouldn't that kinda limit it ? Surrrrrre....one can say 'It force the player to choose another path'' . But...if I don't like Corp background, I certainly don't wanna be screwed cose X character only show up with said background .I wonder if Life Path makes any difference to romance options ? If you go Corpo you have a chance to romance Meredith Stout or if you go with Street Kid you lock Meredith Stout out as a LI ?
You can still play a street kid character who hates his past as a gang member for what ever reason and turns on them.
