This week’s presenter:
Expert presentation on “How to name your business”, presented by Jen Neumann, Partner, de Novo Marketing, and Frank Camp, General Counsel, NewBoCo. Their talk will focus on a variety of challenges in developing your company’s name – and ultimately your brand – including: how to do basic trademark and brand research saving money on attorney fees, how to choose a name that resonates with your audience and stands out from the crowd, when to use focus groups (and when not to), and choosing a name when “all the good ones are taken”.
About 1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids
1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids is a free, weekly program that happens nationwide designed to educate, engage, and connect entrepreneurs.
Developed by the Kauffman Foundation, 1MC is based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a million cups of coffee. Early-stage businesses and established companies facing interesting challenges are welcome to present their companies to a panel of experts for advice, and engage the audience in a question-and-answer session to encourage collaborative and honest conversations. We also feature expert speakers, founder fireside interviews, and exploration of business failures and the shared learning that comes from those failures.
1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids is led by a group of passionate volunteers:
- Akira Allen
- Eric Engelmann
- Laura Gansemer
- Jessalyn Holdcraft
- Rina Jensen
- Julie Lammers
- Scott Swenson
- James Welbes
1MCCR is sponsored by local companies and organizations that support our entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystem:
