  7. 7. In France, Startups are seen as Smaller Versions of Large Companies Startup ˈstärt-ˌəp - noun 1. A STARTUP IS A TEMPORARY ORGANIZATION IN SEARCH OF A SCALABLE, REPEATABLE AND PROFITABLE BUSINESS MODEL. See also: A scalable startup is designed by intent from day one to become a large company. Scalable startups aim to provide a tremendous return to their founders and investors. Applying rules of established companies to startups is irrelevant, distracting and clearly damaging while growing and managing a startup.
