    X for Y

    A way entrepreneurs use to describe their startup to customers and investors so they can quickly grasp how their product works. It is done by comparing your startup to another successful company that likely pioneered its business model.

    My startup is Airbnb for cars = people can borrow your car when you are not using it
    My startup is Uber for food = food will be delivered to you on demand
    My startup is Urban Dictionary for Silicon Valley = svdictionary.com

      BART

      BART which stands for Bay Area Rapid Transit is a rapid transit system that services the San Francisco Bay Area. It is one of the most popular ways to get around the area as they operate 44 stations that cover a large portion of SF Bay. While safe and convenient for the most part, BART is also home to some of the most interesting characters you will find.

      Tim: Why does it smell so bad in here? Did that dude just pee on the ground? Why is he taking his pants off now?

      Pickup Hacks

      A nerdy term thrown around that denotes strategies to ask women (or men) out.

      Winston: Yo Bob got any Pickup hacks?

      Bob: Yeah. Stop compensating for traits that you think you lack, by putting down every person you meet for their "lack of intelligence."

      Winston: Fuck, I can't do that. I'm playing DOTA tonight instead.

        Lead Investor

        When raising a large round of seed money, the lead investor is your headliner that makes it more convincing for other investors to get on board.

        After Ashton Kutcher became our lead investor, every bloodsucking leach in the valley decided to send me emails asking if they could get in on the round.

          Working Remotely

          Sounds fancy, but its basically when someone is too lazy to go to the office so they do minimal work from home. If they do this often enough they take a picture of their computer at a nice coffee shop or dining table saying how lucky they are to have the job they do to mask their small amount of shame.

          Lowe: I got 20 likes on my Facebook picture of me working remotely.

          Ryan: Your an unfunded startup founder, you ALWAYS work remotely.

            Swoop n' Poop

            When a stakeholder, manager, or client who has not been involved in the project drops into a meeting and adds extra functionality requirements or makes comments that change the scope.

            Everything was going fine until Chad came in out of no where and pulled a "Swoop n' Poop". Now we are three days until deadline and have to scrap the whole thing!

                    Quora

                    Quora is a overhyped startup unicorn that is jealous of Reddit's +500 million monthly visitors and was founded by a former Facebook employee. On Quora where you can ask questions about how to get rich, how to pitch investors and gossip about famous companies like Google, Apple and Facebook. Oh, and also stalk Jimmy Wales and Adrian Lamo.

                    Now seriously: A Q&A website where you can ask questions about anything and have article-length answers written by Top Writers or Ph.D.s who spend nearly 2 hours writing superb answers full of images, graphics and details that are above your comprehension and that later will probably be posted to Gizmodo, TechCrunch, Forbes, BBC, The New York Times, Slate, Buzzfeed, Huffington and Washington Post or any other popular news-media website.

                    Now seriously, seriously: A Question and Answer website where you can ask and answer questions about any topic and interact with highly intelligent people from all over the world and get happy when your content is sent on their daily email called "Quora Digest" to over a million people.

                    Tired of that shit, now for real: Quora is the best place on the internet to find the best answer for your questions. (It'd certainly be if it had more users).

                    Lisa: Hey, Jon, today I got over 200,000 views on my answers on Quora!
                    Jon: Quora? What's Quora?
                    Lisa: Quora is a website similar to Yahoo Answers where you can ask and answer a lot of interesting stuff!
                    Jon: Oh, cool.
                    Jon: Well, being relevant to that number of people on Twitter or Facebook is a different story, isn't it?

                    This Guy Fucks

                    Made popular by Russ Hanneman on the Silicon Valley show. It is just something to say when you want to mess with somebody. Meaningless. Could also mean this guy has a lot of sex but its impossible to tell.

                      Innovator

                      A catch-all euphemism for "douchebag." Frequently used to a) describe one's self in a Twitter bio/LinkedIn headline or b) describe others when you're not really sure what they do exactly, but it probably has something to do with disruption or artisanal donuts or growth hacking or some shit.

                      Your LinkedIn headline: "Innovator/CEO of Douche, The World's First Ephemeral Craft Beer Wearable."

                          A developer who is constantly in a braindead state, having become accustomed to a severe degree of apathy (causes may vary) and low motivation.

                          Some studies have shown that undev-ness is contractable, but the means by which it spreads continues to elude scientists.
