Learned from one of my company's co-founders that in VC world a company which merely aims to support it's employees and owners without aspirations of eating the world or making investors millions is called a lifestyle company.

Seems an oddly derogatory way to refer to a financially healthy business.

@zacharius Seems only fair to call the other type a deathstyle company.

@zacharius It's not a VC term. It's the term such companies choose for themselves I think. Like 37Signals etc.
