    Nowadays, startups have been of growing significance in software business. After the publication of the seminal work of Eric Ries, the Lean Startup concept has been a popular trend. Startup companies have especially been popping up in the volatile fields of web applications and games. Startups have even been dubbed to be the saviors of declining western economies.

    In this paper, we describe patterns that are a part of a larger pattern language for software start-up companies. The patterns were collected during autumn 2013. These particular patterns help start-up companies to focus on the hardships of the starting up a start-up; knowing that your idea is worth of our effort and how to finance your vision.
