Our company has been around for more than ten years but it still fosters a "startup" mentality at times, so for example when I needed a Linux server I just appropriated an old computer and put it under my desk, and started developing on it.
Instead of getting upset at what I did, the company made getting new dev servers even easier, first via virtual servers and then from Amazon EC2. So now anybody can make their own server and start developing the next great awesome product on it. It's really cool!
