Anonymity is the new trend in Silicon Valley, and Startups Anonymous is pegging itself as a safe place for founders to share their stories and frustrations.

  • These terms and valuation are completely made up. I looked it up online and went with what everyone else said was a good place to start.
  • I don’t understand a majority of the terminology, so please don’t ask me any questions about it.
