    As verbs, they all mean "to begin".

    To start off is normally used to begin a journey from A to B. For example: We started off in San Francisco. = We began in San Francisco The journey need not be physical. For example: We started off in German. = We began in German.

    To start up meas to turn a machine on. For example, Please start up the lawn mower. = Please turn the lawn mower on.

    To start out is used very much like start off and is normally used to begin a journey. We started out with shirimp cocktails. = We began with shirmp cocktails.
