Fast, actionable brand advice -- exclusively for early stage startups & small, rapidly growing companies. You need brand triage to adapt & thrive, not generic strategy that amounts to little more than "be more like Apple." That's what I do.
You're racing to get the beta released. You live on ramen and the free coffee at your accelerator. Fundraising is the closest thing you have to a social life. Strategic priorities are constantly evolving. You know you need a great brand. But in a rush to secure a URL, all you had time for is a mashup name that ends in -er, -ly, or -ify.
Whether you have just a couple hours or a few weeks, I'll help you navigate this crazy terrain and arrive at an authentic and differentiated brand position and identity prototype. Most important, your brand will be recognizable, unique, and own-able.
I've developed brand identities and positioning strategies for several startups, including accelerator/incubator supported and venture capital funded companies. I have also provided product brand strategy for clients while at a digital agency.
One more thing... I keep my call rates low to give back to the startup community. I was in your shoes once and I know the challenges. My full consulting fees for established firms are substantially higher. So please, be considerate of the value of my time and I'll be considerate of your budget. Cheers and good luck!
