The Startup Company Culture

The startup company culture brings a unique set of characteristics.

Here’s a list of qualities to consider:

Passion — the company is based on a driving passion to solve a problem or pursue a cause.

Startups exude passion and everyone strives to work towards it.

Personality — each startup has its own unique personality based on the founders, their experiences, and their mission.

This gives the company a unique culture based purely on the founders.

Agility — startups have speed and technology that large companies cannot match.

Startups can move fast and adopt new business models and technologies to pursue their goals.

Authenticity — startups don’t have a long history or tradition to carry and so can pursue their mission unencumbered.

Large companies come with bureaucracy that distracts from their goals.

Energy — startups give off energy and excitement.

Based on the potential of the idea and the newness of the company, startups energize the market with the promise of change and improvement.

The startup culture to some appears to lack rigor and accountability.

It can attract and retain employees for a period of time.

Eventually, the startup culture will be replaced with a big company culture as the startup moves to be an established business.

Consider the startup culture of your company.
