Some bits could be added like, for instance, attitude and language.

I did meet some students actually speaking about startups and entrepreneurship but who did not even sound convinced.

And would not expect to work 24/7 and would expect some money and, and ... . They are the kind cut for a corporate job.

Not a bad thing just a different thing but being able to step back for a second and consider expectations, skills, willpower, etc ... may allow not to make a decision which would inevitably go wrong.

Samuel Pavin's insight:

Corporations and startups. Indeed quite different but two kinds of companies with growing interest in each other.

And growing relationships.

More marked interest, funding, structures, ... from corporations and a potential partner not to discard from the startup point-of-view. Especially as a corporation can be a beta customer and a winning reference for later.

But partnerships are not always easy and bringing together companies - and people - of two different kinds can be challenging sometimes.

Here is a very good piece providing some keys to understand, and prepare, these two worlds.
