Pretotype

A simple, often paper version of a very early prototype built in less than a day to help a startup team actualize their idea without spending a lot of time noodling on the "what ifs" and "how might we" questions.

Okay, let's pretotype these 3 ideas today so we can focus on one of them by the end of the week.

Full stack engineer

We want to hire you to work on all parts of the stack because we cannot afford specialized engineers for the different technical stack pieces and feel it's better to start the stack being sub-par instead of having expertise in each stack layer.

We are looking for a full-stack engineering to join our start-up, the next Google!

Bachelor's Degree

An academic degree which typically consists of about 40 college classes in a particular field of study. Much like a startup, it is typically either undervalued (by the uneducated) or overvalued (by zealous parents) rather than being appreciated in equanimity as a testament to consistent work under an educational institution. Also known as Peter Thiel's Kryptonite

Harold: So I see that you got a Bachelor's Degree just last year?

Katelyn: Yes, in Electrical Engineering

Harold: Hmm, so can you use Linux?

Katelyn: ...

Ok guys, we're done with this legacy code. Technical bankruptcy needs to happen. Let's start from scratch.

Equity Leaching Nests

Office spaces that require you to give up percent ownership of your company (or warrants to purchase parts of your company up to 10 years) in exchange for month to month office space.

The Ratchetry is an equity leaching nest that wants our company to sign up. Although I like the investor team that backs it, I'm pretty indifferent about the program itself.
