I understand that in this game to float a corporation means that a company is able to operate, after the 50% or more of the Corporation's stock has been bought.
Checking on-line the term float I have found these:
Another term that you may encounter is 'float'. This refers to a company's shares that are freely bought and sold without restrictions in the public. Denoting the greatest proportion of stocks trading on the exchanges, the float consists of regular shares that many of us will hear or read about in the news.
Another one says:
The number of shares of a security that are outstanding and available for trading by the public.
So I assume that to float is different in this game than in the specific financial meaning.
What another expression we can use for to float? to operate? to start operations?
