Over the last couple of months, I have been involved in a few discussions, some private, some in a group environment, some in a government capacity – all revolving around the term “startup” and who in fact it actually belongs to. I must admit, I have been fence sitting when it comes to this particular topic, and part of me get’s really annoyed about the conversation, as I don’t feel comfortable excluding a group from using a term because it doesn’t fit the definition another is giving it.
