What is a Startup company?

Filed under: Personal, Startup — Tags: , , , , , , — . @ 1:31 pm

Meeting people on my trip, I have been telling them that I work in a startup company. And someone corrected me that it’s not a startup.
Over 50 employees, alive for 7 years and several clients, I guess it is not really your stereotype startup anymore.
But where do you draw the line? At what point does the startup emerge from it’s cocoon, spread it’s fragile wings and tell the word “I’m a company” and fly free?
Any Ideas?



  1. When you have a purchase order system in place that is automated and requires the signatures of half the company (company size is irrelevant here) for a purchase of a paper clip.

  3. That’s a tough question to answer. I’m working for a company right now that has 60 employees and they are 5 years old. I’m in a position to expand the company by basically being the first marketer the company has had. I consider it a start up

    I would consider any company that is still growing at a pretty steady pace a startup. Once the company is pretty established with minimal growth, I would just consider it a company.

    I mention my job in a ‘startup’ in my blog:
