Canadian Founder - My startup is now officially a Narwhal!
European Founder - Um Mr. American entrepreneur, if you may excuse me for a moment... the Unicorn is of European-origin, but if you like your horned mythical beasts so much, you can have the Jackalope!
Russia Founder - North Americans have messed with the Russians for far too long, the Narwhal is ours!
Canadian Founder - Oh sorry about (yes we say "about", not "aboot") that, how about we share?

    Adblock Competenacy Test

    Checking to see if a person has enough basic knowledge to have installed adblock on their browser of choice.

    After opening the link to the new Justin Bieber music video, George failed the Adblock Competency Test after waiting for a 30 second Honda commercial to end.

      US Bitcoin Legislative Arms Race

      This references the pressure Bitcoin startups have to show significant traction or get acquired before the United States outlaws the use of Bitcoin (whether this will or will not happen is of course debatable).

      Look man, because of the US Bitcoin Legislative Arms Race, our job is to make enough sales and sell out before the House and Senate make some extreme move in banning Bitcoin and making our company essentially worthless here in the US. I don't want to move to Greece man.

        East Bay Startups

        Despite mainstream view, they indeed exist are are growing more and more prevalent. With the absurd prices in San Francisco and Palo Alto, areas in Downtown Oakland, Emeryville, and pockets of Berkeley have seen increased growth in new company offices.

        Many also consider living in the East Bay incredibly convenient, despite it's reputation for crime. It is often asked whether east bay startups should be considered apart of "Silicon Valley," to which many reply..."meh close enough."

        Winston: Where is your startup office located good sir.

        James: Oakland son.

        Winston: I am not familiar with this Oak-Land. How far is it from Sand Hill Road?

        Terrence: Charles, moving you to Bcc.

          Technical Social Media Manager

          Somebody who in addition to being able to retweet and favorite tweets mentioning their company's name also knows basic HTML.

          I've managed to carve a nice niche for myself by learning how to bold text using html

            The Five Dollar Footlong Lean Startup Diet

            When a startup founder lives off of five dollar foot long sandwiches to save money for his or her early stage venture. They buy a single five dollar foot long subway sandwich, eat half of it in the afternoon and the other half at dinner.

            Since Julius is on the five dollar day long diet, he only eats footlong subway sandwiches everyday to conserve his companies startup money. It's kind of sad.

              Jeremy Lin

              The perfect child. A Harvard graduate and now a player in the NBA. He is often used in reference by parents (especially in Palo Alto where he went to High School) to "motivate" their child to do better in all aspects of life.

              Krishna Lee: Mom, I got into UCLA!
              Mom: "WHY YOU NO LIKE JEREMY LIN. HE GO TO HARVARD AND PLAY IN NBA."

                On Demand

                Another way of saying "for lazy people."

                Meals on demand. That's right, we're revolutionizing the way you get pizza.

                  Silicon Beach

                  The area around Playa Del Rey/Venice where a fuckload of tech companies are moving in. Synonymous with brogrammers and people that wear startup t-shirts in public.

                  Brogrammer Intern 1: "These new start-up tanks are clutch! Silicon Beach is the fucking bomb dot com!"

                  Brogrammer Intern 2: "Shakabrah dude let's get SugarFish later then hit up the Bungalow since we're rich and gentrifying LA!"

                  Brogrammer Intern 1: "Tubular brah let me shave my neckbeard first then we can get hyphy for real my friend"

                  Ted: "Are you looking for a job on Craigslist?"

                    My Code is Compiling

                    An excuse engineers use to do whatever the hell they want in the workplace.

                    Jimmy: Dude why are you riding your bike indoors, listening to Daft Punk with the speakers blasted, without any pants on?
                    Lewis: My code is compiling.

                      Facebook Reach

                      Facebook reach is the number of people that see posts from Facebook pages. Organic Facebook reach has dropped since Facebook made changes to their feed algorithm to encourage companies to buy ads promoting page posts.

                      It's almost pointless for our startup to promote our Facebook page because we will have to pay to get any Facebook reach.

                      VC Money

                      Modern day Robinhood.
                      Taking money from your parent's retirement pension and redistributing it to early adopters of technology in Silicon Valley.

                      Friend 1: "How do you have so many free meals from Munchery? Have you ever paid for a single meal?"
                      Friend 2: "Nope. VC Money"

                        Amazon

                        A company that sells groceries to the lazy, stock shares to the gullible, and cloud services to the lazy and gullible.

                        Amazon: because I want to buy my underwear and Redis clusters from the same company.

                          Slacking

                          Using a productivity tool called Slack to get work done or communicate with one's team. This can easily be confused to mean "not doing one's work."

                          Jack: You've been getting alot done.

                          James: Yeah man, I've been slacking all day.

                            When a person spends immense amount of time swiping right, in an attempt to get any match available regardless of attraction.

                            Ever since I've broken up with Mary, I've been on a Tinder binge trying to find someone...anyone.

                              Tweetstorm

                              When somebody wants to tweet something that is more than 140 characters but is not considerate enough to link to a blog post or use an image. Tweets in a tweetstorm are generally numbered and look like a mini essay in your Twitter feed.
