When the articles of incoporation are approved, a corporation comes into existence.
Does "comes into existence" mean "is founded?"
Can I say "Jame's promise of being a student student came into existence yesterday?"

Thanks!

In that context, yes.

Yes, but it would be better to say, "Jame's promise of becoming a student student became a reality yesterday."
