Recently, I met few engineers who thought they'd rather be working for a startup than writing reports for a big MNC 😀 !

Now the question is - what according to you is a 'startup'? Is it couple of engineers sitting together with their laptops in a garage or in the basement? Or is it something that you do part-time while holding on to your regular job?

What do you think? What is a 'startup'? Posted in: #Startups & Business

The companies started by first time entrepreneurs are called as start ups. Since they are new, you have ample opportunities to grow because of the freedom you enjoy. Moreover new companies mostly work on latest ideas. So they tend to attract more guys.

Would you call a 'part time' venture a startup?
