What are Startups? These are early-stage companies that offer an innovative product or service – this innovative service delivery is what turns work into money. That it can be replicable – that it can deliver the same product to another customer without too many changes or customizations – and that it is scalable – that grows in revenue, without influencing the business model, and costs grow slowly.
