Learn about the structure of startups, how they grow and receive funding, and how they differ from small businesses

A startup is a company characterized by its agile and lean format. It is composed of a group of people looking for a repeatable and scalable business model in a deeply uncertain and unstable environment. Startups aim to solve a clear and well-defined problem and strive for exponential growth in the short term.

Meanwhile, a small company focuses on solid results in the medium and long-term.
