What is a startup? Is it the same as a growth business?

There is no specific and widely accepted definition for the term startup. Most often a startup is associated with young, maximum few years old business and the technology industry. The main feature in any case is the will to grow quickly. So, a startup is a growth business but not every grown business is a startup company! Startup can represent any industry.

Here a startup means the following:

  1. Startup is a young, growth minded and internationally aiming growth business
  2. The function of a startup is based on an innovation in the product or the business model. Innovation has demand and competition leverage in the market. The business can be scaled for new markets.
  3. Startup is only developing the first product. The product development and marketing require money, but income is yet to be made.
  4. Outside external investors and sufficient financial resources are searched for the company to go international.
