Abstract

Startup companies are newly born companies which struggle for existence. These entities are mostly formed based on brilliant ideas and grow to succeed. These phenomena are mentioned in the literature of management, organization, and entrepreneurship theories. However, a clear picture of these entities is not available. This paper tries to conceptualize the phenomenon, i.e. “startup,” and recognize the challenges they might face. After reviewing the life cycle and the challenges, the paper concludes with some concluding remarks.

Keywords: Startup, Life cycle, Challenges, conceptualization
