Infoshare agrees with Steve Blank's definition: a startup is an organization formed to search for a repeatable and scalable business model and a business model describes how your company creates, delivers and captures value. The startup offers its own innovative product. Companies offering services, like consulting and programming services (e.g. software houses) can not be named startup in this definition.
