Your brand is a powerful tool. One that can inspire and inform everything you do. From marketing, to development, to everyday business decisions.
“Branding” is not simply a name, a logo, a color palette or a tagline slogan - it’s the psychological force behind your business. Branding a company takes time, money, and experience. Small wonder it’s not exactly high on the priority list for most early-stage startups. A great brand is the reflection of an existing set of truths about your company, your values, your audience and you. Come listen to our speakers distill the brand process down for you, providing startups in Coimbatore a platform to discuss brand strategy, messaging, design thinking and more. .
One of India's most popular startup events, Startup Saturday is organized by Headstart Network Foundation , a non-profit organization on the mission to ‘Change the World through Entrepreneurship’. The event helps early stage startups and aspiring entrepreneurs by providing them with the guidance, mentorship and support that they need to turn their entrepreneurial dreams into reality.
At Startup Saturdays you can listen to successful entrepreneurs as they share inspiration and insights on launching and running a startup, get all your startup- related queries answered by them, and interact with a like-minded group of fellow entrepreneurs and startup enthusiasts, to further deepen your knowledge about the entrepreneurial ecosystem of India
