StartUp Culture : Founders Bane?

What’s your imagination of startups & their culture? Couple of orange green bean bags as work stations, smiling faces posing with coffee mugs on social media, overenthusiastic founders in jeans, high five high decibel all around, well-lit open office spaces, a touchy story as to why the founders started the venture. Or few friends working out of their apartment with their old laptops, asking friends and families to fund them. They might be waiting for their customers to give meetings or praying for their first/next paying customer or frustrated convincing their aspirant employees that they are the next big thing.
