I wonder how long this little gem will be allowed to stay up in the online version of the Washington Post:

The case against Kerik that federal prosecutors are preparing could generate uncomfortable political attention for Giuliani because it focuses on Kerik’s activities while the two men were in government together and were jointly running Giuliani-Kerik, which was paid millions of dollars for advising upstart companies, doing federal work and consulting with clients overseas (emphasis added).

Here are the results of a Google search for definitions of upstart; here on the other hand, are the definitions of startup.
