Start-up, Scale-up, Business Angel, Unicorn, Venture capital – What do all these terms describe? Let’s have a guess… maybe “start-up” or “scale-up” is a kind of a call to action? No, it is not. “Business angel” and “unicorn”, maybe these are two creatures one can find in a fantasy novel? No, they are not. So, what does these terms refer to? We all have heard at least one or two of these terms already because we encounter them almost every day when scrolling through news websites, newspapers and the business press. They are used in articles about young, innovative and ambitious companies in the IT industry. We tend to use these terms in a way which suggests that we are absolutely familiar with their meaning. But on can imagine that in truth it is not clear for everybody what for example “scale-up” describes. That is why in the following lines I will spend some time to explain what a start-up is, what scale-up requirements are and where one can find business angels, unicorns and venture capital.

Testing to find defects and bugs can be a time consuming, expensive and repetitive task. However, testing is crucial to the success of your digital product as if your software doesn’t work properly, there’s a high change people won’t use it. There are plenty of tools available to help make testing more manageable. One such is automation, which can be extremely beneficial when utilised correctly. It helps streamline the entire process while reducing costs and shortening your development cycles. Additionally, it will help in avoiding tedious, repetitive tasks. However, using it incorrectly or during the wrong stage of development or, in some cases, for a product that is not well suited for automation, can make it a burden rather than a benefit. For this reason, it’s extremely important to understand how and when to use test automation in the best possible manner.
Every year on March 8th, International Women’s Day is celebrated. This initiative is supported by many charities, governments, NGO’s, businesses, academic institutions and women’s networks all around the globe, celebrating current achievements and calling to further tackle issues regarding gender equality.
Its history goes back to the 1908 Women’s March in the US where 15,000 women for the first time ever stood up for themselves and demanded equality in an organised form. Since then, luckily, a lot of things have changed when it comes to being a woman in different parts of the world. Global cultural differences aside, it is overall an ongoing and constantly improving movement towards raising awareness and striving towards gender equality on all different levels.
