    Question A new bank started up from scratch... OR starting up from scratch???

    Talking about a company, a bank in this case (Antares Bank), I am not sure about this sentence.

    Antares Bank, a new bank started up from scratch.

    OR have I to say

    Antares Bank, a new bank starting up from scratch.

    ????

    Can I ask why? Perhaps I missed the context...

    The bank started up from scratch 6 years ago and it is a normal bank now.

    The context is important. In this sentence "started" is needed. As you opriginally asked, it looked like a part-statement - "I worked with xxxx Bank, starting from scratch".

    Sorry Anglika if I missed the context at the begging, however I am still confused

    In my CV I write:

    Antares Bank, a new bank started up from scratch - as Project Manager I developed plans and ....

    Big Bank, a retail banking - as Business Analyst I introduced innovative...


    I do not work any more for Antares Bank where I worked for in 2002.
