So out of curiosity I looked up the “startup” that this author is CEO of and found it has 6 people.

You could have saved yourself the time researching. I explained our size and composition in the second comment ever posted on the day the article was written. You are mistaken in your concept of startup. The bigger the company, the less startup-y it is. Google, for example, is not a startup, but rather a tech company. It’s us small, scrappy teams that are true startups.
