For many hacked-together startups, security is an afterthought. But for bitcoin-related startups, and other companies where money is moving through their system, security is a make-it or break-it factor. There are plenty of white-hat security firms out there that will run some tests on your project, but you're relying completely on one firm. To help startups run more of a bug-bounty program (like what Google and the other big companies do) and to make security more accessible, Denmark-founded Crowdcurity crowdsources these security tests and just announced it has raised $1 million.

Imagine you, as an individual, purchase a car for €5000 from a private person. Money changes owner, so does the car, but before you know it, the car breaks down and turns out it’s nothing the vendor has promised it to be. Worst yet, the vendor refuses to pay you your money back.

Kittat, a consignment service for second hand children’s clothing has announced that they have received a 300,000 SEK grant from Vinnova to grow their start-up based in Stockholm.

The childrens clothing consignment space is certainly not unchartered territory outside of Sweden, many players in the US dominate... Read More

Below is a guest post by Antti Hemmilä of Attorneys at law Borenius, who has previously written for us on crowdfunding here.

Startup – [stAHrt-uhp] (noun): “a new organization or business venture.” Short, simple, and utterly ambiguous. Courtesy of Wiktionary.
Fortunately, the Urban Dictionary expounds on this unsatisfactory brevity with: “A recently formed company. In modern terminology, it has come to describe a company formed with a business model relying on the internet.” Better, but it’s just not definitive enough.
Paul Graham‘s definition is much more elucidative: “a startup is a company designed to grow fast. Being newly founded does not in itself make a company a startup. Nor is it necessary for a startup to... Read More
