    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!

    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.
