Growing Fast

As Paul Graham once put it: “A startup is a company designed to grow fast. Being newly founded does not in itself make a company a startup.” But, similarly, just because you’re “late-stage” — big, massively well-funded and relatively mature — doesn’t mean you’re not a startup. A corollary of Graham’s definition is: if you need to grow fast, then no matter how big you are, you’re still a startup – meaning you’re still extremely vulnerable. via Link

Across the article, this sentence makes the most sense. “if you need to grow fast, then no matter how big you are, you’re still a startup”
