A company's culture is a set of shared values, attitudes, goals and practices. By defining our startup culture we can begin to better support the employees, improve operations, support the working environment and make valued contributions.
Many times first time startup founders have a difficult time defining their culture from the beginning as they do not pay much attention towards it, later this can have a detrimental effect on the business operations.
I believe from the very beginning start to set up the culture you want your company to follow. You probably have an idea of what you know is important for your startup success.
You need to identify the core values, the identity, growth strategy and communication for the culture to flourish. What you do not want is for your company to start creating its own culture which will happen if it is not defined and the type of employees you hire and their work practices and ethics will start to take the culture in a direction that you may not like. So setting those expectations from the start is important.
