Changing the world

Outside of Silicon Valley this can mean curing cancer, eliminating Malaria and solving world hunger but within SV it means a bigger iPhone, an iPhone the size of a tablet, an iPhone strapped to your wrist or Yo (http://techcrunch.com/2014/06/18/yo-yo/)

A synonym of "This changes everything" and "This changes everything. Again"

    Y Combinator

    A label you add to your startup's intro (if chosen) that your company exchanges 7% of protected equity to arbitrary increase your valuation with.

    After getting accepted from Y Combinator, my 3 man team from [insert top 5 engineering school here], we launched our [insert undeveloped idea that sounds good on paper here], and raised 1.5 million dollars from Demo Day because we're changing the world.

    Hipsterpreneur

    A person that sits frequently in hi-design coffee bistros, that claims to be changing the world with his big eco-friendly & non-scalable idea.

    While in reality this harmless, cobweb-bearded, latte-sipping, fixie-cycling creature camps out days on end, in mood-light-coffee-bistros leeching on free wifi and lemon water without having a remote clue of what it actually takes to hustle and hack his way to a MVP and beyond.

      Hipsterpreneur: Hashtag MVP. Hashtag unicorn. Friend/Interventionist: Dude, you got biscotti on your beard.
