    The startup world has developed a vernacular of its own which, for those of us whose daily lives are spent immersed in startups, seems like a first, rather, than second language. However, to friends, family and the uninitiated, we might sound as though we are talking as if from the real, rather than proverbial, Mars and Venus!

    Last Thursday night’s Founder Friday Orange County was a success. You would not think of Orange County as a hotbed of startups. There were many interesting and successful female entrepreneurs in the room and filled it with great energy. In addition, many organizations were excited and reached out to help make Founder Friday bigger and better.

    The Art Of The Startup (May 3 In Menlo Park)

    First-time entrepreneurs will benefit from the event “The Art Of The Startup” on May 3 in Palo Alto.

    However, successfully avoiding the most common pitfalls can make a significant difference as to whether or not a company is fundable, the sources and types of capital that will be attracted, who controls the company, the economic impact on founders upon exit, and a company’s likelihood of success.
