Some of the most successful companies in the world began as startups. Examples, you say? How about Facebook, Twitter and one of the best new startups of 2011, Pinterest? In each case, the company's founders saw a need for something, filled the void, and became huge sensations in the tech world. For some, the process was a long one. Others, however, rocketed to startup stardom virtually overnight. Make no mistake, however, in thinking that it was all luck. Hardly. It was for most, blood, sweat and tears, involving countless hours of work and lots of sleepless nights.
