Entrepreneur's Circle: Brand Naming Up Close with Margaret Wolfson

Entrepreneur_Circle_at The_Hivery.jpg

Join us for our casual and conversational Entrepreneur's Circle at The Hivery! This is another way to make sure you're not going at the business of building a business on your own, but rather with the trusted circle of The Hivery community. This month, we welcome Margaret Wolfson, the Founder and Chief Creative of River + Wolf, a New York City brand naming agency, to lead our monthly circle.

In this interactive presentation, she will introduce participants to the often mysterious world of brand naming. The workshop will include an overview of elements to consider when developing a brand name--from style to construction to messaging--as well as insights on where to find inspiration. The talk will also touch on the role of trademarking.

Key takeaways include:

  • What makes a strong brand name

  • What to consider when developing a brand name

  • Tips and techniques for name development

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!
