Hard question to answer. Personally, would say it is very much dependent on the skill and experience of the individual. The one thing you will lack is domain experience which can be very important.

I do not look fondly on startups (I think your co-workers are telling you what you want to hear): they appear to be mostly cowboy affairs, run by hopeful amateurs and using the cheapest (free) technology they can get their hands on: this does not translate well to the corporate world.

In any case, the value of the type of experience you have is entirely subjective. Is, say, 2 years of startup better than 2 years of corporate? That would entirely depend upon the perspective and needs of the hiring manager.
"If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur." Red Adair.
