Too short of detail to really serve as an object lesson to those who follow in their footsteps.

The best movies, it's often said, are happy accidents. Startup.com proves the dictum while being smart and responsive enough to react to the impending train wreck.

Audience Reviews for Startup.com

In terms of it's historical value, this documentary is very good in documenting the whole startup boom, unfortunately I just couldn't keep that interested in the subjects they had chosen.
