Lunch & Learn: Minimum Viable Brand
Sep 22 @ 11:30 pm – Sep 23 @ 1:30 pm
Startups are familiar with what it means to have a Minimum Viable Product. Meanwhile, not all startups also have the resources required to develop and perfect a brand. Speed to market is paramount for your startup, but a Minimum Viable Brand strategy should be developed alongside your tech in order to grab the attention of customers, community, and prospects. On Sept. 22, you’ll learn how to build the foundations of your brand with a positioning statement and graphic elements, and how to apply to them to your overall strategy. Our panel for this event includes Terry Davison of Global Office Software, Suzanne Braun of Relish New Brand Experience and Quipped Interactive Learning Tools, Karen Debroni of Debroni & Associates and Kevin Guenther of Permission Click. North Forge Lunch & Learns take place at the SmartPark Event Centre, 100 One Research Road from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. RSVP to join us.
