Hmmm... startup of a standalone app or startup in the IDE? In the
script of the first card of the stack (not in the stack script itself)
you can do the following:

on startup
  -- the startup message is only sent to standalone apps
  -- make some things invisible
  -- set the visible of someObject to false
  -- set the visible of group lotsOfObjects to false
end startup

on preOpenStack
  -- this one works in the IDE
  -- make some things invisible
end preOpenStack
