    Re: Different between

    In the first, somebody started the company. In the second, the company started something else (we are not told what).

    Context and complete sentences will lead to better answers.

    Re: Different between

    Matthew, the first one is not a sentence without a period/full stop. Even with a period, the sentence would not mean much. The second might be a noun + a verb. We can't really tell.

    Thank you. Unnecessary. Just click 'Thank' when you get a useful answer.
    Matthew, you have been asked recently to refrain from jumping in after ten minutes with a hasty answer before native speakers have had a chance to reply. It puts us to the trouble of having to correct your mistakes as well as the OP.
