A startup is… focused on growth.
“To me a startup is any company that has a goal to grow and scale, usually quickly and usually using technology to do so,” Ian Wright, founder of Merchant Machine, tells Startups.co.
“All startups by their very nature will start out being small businesses, but not all small businesses are startups. The difference with startups is that it’s their goal to no longer be a startup at some point in the future, while many small business owners are more than happy for their small businesses to remain small businesses.”
Take risks and be willing to fail.
