29 Little West 12th Street
New York, NY 10014

Wednesday, April 5, 2017 -
6:30pm to 8:30pm


ABOUT THE EVENT When you launch a business there are many things to think about and prioritize. Where does building your brand factor in and how do you do it? Many entrepreneurs grapple with this question and the current startup ecosystem doesn’t necessarily provide resources to answer and act upon this question. Achieving goals such as driving customer growth or securing that next round of investment are directly related to your ability to connect with your audience and persuade them to buy into what you’re selling which is more than your product, it’s your brand. Our discussion will cover the challenges startups and investors face when defining a new brand. What kind of help do startups most commonly need? How valuable is a brand to a startup? When do entrepreneurs need to invest in their brand? A diverse group of professionals offering a variety of perspectives will be part of the panel. Join us in the conversation!
