Startup Success Series: Decoding Startup Slang

As a new founder, you’re already taking a step into a world full of unknowns. As you build your venture and grow your network, you’re going to come across a lot of words and phrases you might not have heard before. From technical terms to colloquialisms and everything in between, it can be a little overwhelming!

That’s why for this edition of the Startup Success Series, we’re decoding startup slang. Not sure on the difference between accelerators and incubators? We’ll cover it. Can’t tell the difference between trademarks and copyrights? We’ve got you. Not familiar with accronyms like ARR, AMA and TLDR? We’ll decode it all.

This session will be a little different to previous Startup Success Series. We’re asking you for the terms and words you’re not sure on ahead of the session so we have a big list of what you want to learn about. Let us know on socials @startupvic or email us at and we’ll add your suggestions to the schedule! Following the event we’ll create a public Google Doc for anyone to access and reference.
