Understanding startup is a company that has just been built or in a pioneering period, but does not apply to all fields of business, the term startup is more categorized for companies in the field of technology and information that developed in the internet world.
The types of business can be varied, for example application developers, payment systems, services, commerce and so on.
How about his luck?
Actually, this startup business term has been around since the late 90’s, and one example of a well-known and successful local startup is one of which we all know, Kaskus. With the continued development of the internet world until now, more and more other business people are also interested and start establishing startups.
