The word "startup" can refer to anything from an established small business to a newly founded one; it does not imply any specific size or type of enterprise, but most commonly refers to those with fewer than 500 employees.

Startups are usually funded by angel investors, venture capitalists, or crowdsourcing methods such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo.
