Podcast #34 - Visibility And Branding

Three weeks into Fledge14 (the fourteenth session of my conscious company accelerator) and just about everything we've done is invisible: business planning, financial modeling, learning the realities of funding, and dozens of meetings with mentors are in-progress. What is visible are the three new company names, three new logos, and one refreshed logo. (Re)Branding is the most visible change we make with startups at Fledge, and the most visible aspect of any business plan. In addition to this week's discussion of that process, you can see the results of this effort and historic efforts like it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YQ5DNageCQ Post your questions to www.quora.com/profile/Luni-Libes Read the book at lunarmobiscuit.com/the-next-step See the results of The Next Step at youtube.com/fledgellc More advice at lunarmobiscuit.com/blog Music by Kevin MacLeod - incompetech.com
