The term “startup” has become a fad in the recent years, describing a scrappy, premature idea to make money. But, what exactly is a Startup?

Any Idea?

Well, according to Neil Blumenthal, Cofounder, and co-CEO of Warby Parker;

“A startup is a company working to solve a problem where the solution is not obvious and success is not guaranteed,”

Startups are everywhere. Everyone is trying their hand at owning a lucrative business. Some are living their glory days; others are at the depths of despair; that’s life, you can’t win them all.  A few from this lot will become a success story of the future and accumulate massive returns on their investment. Wait and Watch!

A startup can be a proving ground for some budding entrepreneurs to showcase their grip over the game called “Go big, or go home.”
